Kevin Spacey will star in and produce the indie comedy Father of Invention, reports Variety.
Trent Cooper (Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector) will direct from a script he wrote with Jonathan Krane and Nichole Beattie.
The story centers on a humble inventor-turned-egomaniacal billionaire who loses it all when one of his inventions goes horribly awry. After eight years in federal prison, he returns bankrupt, homeless and determined to rebuild his reputation and fortune.
Trigger Street Productions’ Spacey and Dana Brunetti are producing alongside Krane (Swordfish) and Ken Barbet. Scott Lumpkin executive produces.
