The film will star the infamous actor Kevin Spacey 1242: Gateway to the Westhis first major production since 2017, when the star was repeatedly accused of sexual abuse.
The two-time Oscar winner will stage this historic drama in an international co-production involving capitals from the UK, Hungary and Mongolia, Hollywood media reported.
This film is about Batu Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan and one of the commanders-in-chief of the Mongol Empire, who was tasked with invading Europe, but he failed.
Spacey will be cast with actors such as Eric Roberts, Christopher Lambert, Terence Stamp, Jeremy Neumark and Genevieve Florence.
Filming is expected to begin in October under the direction of Hungarian director Peter Suns. Written by Aaron Horvath and Joan Lane, the main producers are Bill Chamberlain and Cornel Sipas.
Since Spacey, the protagonist’s House of Cards and American Beauty was accused of sexual abuse in 2017, he only starred in small films as part of the cast L’uomo Che Disegno Dio (2021), directed by Franco Nero without commercial distribution in Hollywood.
Spacey’s film career was distorted after many young people sued him for allegedly sexually assaulting them at London’s Old Vic Theater between 1995 and 2013.
In addition, in 2020, an anonymous New Yorker accused him that a film producer would have acted in the same way with him during the 1980s, when the plaintiff was 14 years old.
Spacey’s last serious appearance on the billboard was with Billionaire Boys Club (2018), directed by James Cox, who was then demoted due to scandal.
