HOLLYWOOD – Jeffrey Epstein is the subject of a new film starring Kevin Spacey.
Could a new Jeffrey Epstein biopic be the comeback vehicle for Kevin Spacey? Perhaps, as he tees up a new movie looking into the life of disgraced pedofile Jeffrey Epstein. An independent production of Spacey’s own production company Inappropriate Films, rumors have it that Spacey might also direct. A Spacey watcher, Mike Cavern told us:
At the moment, no director is going to touch Kevin. Ironically. So it makes sense that he do the film himself. I know that he watched the Netflix series Filthy Rich and was very impressed. But he’s been working on the film for some time. Even before Jeffrey killed himself. In fact, that’s one of the reasons that he was close to Jeffrey. He researched all of his roles very thoroughly. Kevin took flights with Jeffrey and tried to study him so that he could play him well. At least that’s what he told me.
Of course, many have criticized Spacey’s project. Critic Angela Panella told Studio Exec:
It’s tasteless and will do nothing to restore his image. Spacey will never live down the reputation that he now has. The only reason I can see for him making this film would be to show there is someone in the world worse than he is. But I don’t think that will work.
Jeffrey Epstein had a long history of abusing and raping women and children. He counted some of the most powerful men in the world as his friends, including Harvey Weinstein, Presidents Clinton and Donald J. Trump. Celebrities such as Woody Allen and Kevin Spacey attended his parties.
Epstein is due out in 2021.
