Kevin Spacey will come back to the big screen to act in an Italian film for the first time since he was accused of sexual assault.
Director Franco Nero and producer Louis Nero will be releasing the low-budget indie “L’uomo Che Disegnò Dio,” which Spacey will make a cameo in, Variety reported.
Louis Nero, who will be the star of the movie, says Spacey will have a small role as a police detective.
The small role will be Spacey’s first since multiple sexual assault and misconduct allegations surfaced in 2017.
“I’m very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film,” Franco Nero said to ABC News. “I consider him a great actor, and I can’t wait to start the movie.”
Spacey turned down ABC News’ and Variety’s request for comment.
In November 2017, Spacey was removed from his star role in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” following the mounting allegations against him. At least 20 young men–who were involved at the Old Vic, a London Theater where Spacey was the artistic director–claimed he had misbehaved.
In 2018, the disgraced actor was charged with indecent assault in Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. The incident involved a teenage boy. However, Spacey pled not guilty, and his charge was later dropped after the boy withdrew his civil lawsuit.
