We thought it was over, and yet… The disgraced actor of House of Cards, Kevin Spacey, is preparing to return to the big screen, which is more in a main role, announces Deadline. In 2017, at the beginning of the movement #MeToo, the American star had been targeted by several accusations of sexual assault. Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp says he was the subject of sexual advances from Spacey when he was just 14 years old. Blacklisted by Hollywood, the actor was fired from House of Cards, and replaced by Christopher Plummer in the film All the Money in the World. In November 2021, he was ordered to pay 31 million dollars in damages to MRC, the production company of House of Cards. Sidelined for several years, Kevin Spacey is therefore preparing his return to the front of the stage. After recently playing a small role in Franco Nero’s independent film The Man Who Drew God, he will star in 1242 – Gateway to the West, a British, Hungarian and Mongolian co-production. The fallen actor will star alongside Eric Roberts, Christophe Lambert (Highlander) and Terence Stamp (Last Night in Soho). Kevin Spacey lands his first role since the sexual assault accusations This historical drama tells the story of Batu Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan. A renowned military commander, he won many battles, from China to Persia. In charge of the invasion of Europe, his meeting in 1242 with Cesareani (Kevin Spacey), a particularly spiritual man, stops his desire for conquest and causes his downfall.
