Kevin Spacey appears in first movie trailer since sexual assault allegations
The first trailer for the new Kevin Spacey movie has been released Peter five eight. It’s the actor’s first footage of a project in nearly five years.
Peter five eight is one of Spacey’s first roles since he was accused of sexual assault by dozens of men, including actor and singer Anthony Rapp, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that shook Hollywood in 2017.
After the allegations surfaced, Spacey was fired from his hit Netflix show house of cards.Ridley Scott also replaced his scenes with Christopher Plummer in All the money in the world.
Last month, Spacey, through his attorneys, said the allegations in Rapp’s lawsuit — in which he alleges Spacey molested him at a party when he was a teenager in 1986 — were untrue.
Spacey’s attorneys stated that the event described by Rapp never happened.
Peter five eight follows Sam (Jet Jandreau), a real estate agent in a small mountain town who turns out to be a troubled alcoholic with a dark secret. Spacey, on the other hand, portrays a “charismatic” stranger who shows up out of the blue at the request of his seedy boss.
Rebecca de Mornay (A risky venture and The hand that rocks the cradle) plays Brenda, a woman Peter tries to get information from for his seedy employer.
The thriller’s marketing slogan is “The guilty always pay the price.”
It’s out this week at the Cannes Film Festival alongside Spacey’s other film, the historical drama 1242 – Gateway to the West.
