Kevin Spacey Will Play Jack Abramoff

ON

Kevin Spacey will play disgraced Washington power broker Jack Abramoff in the true story-based thriller Casino Jack, directed by George Hickenlooper from an original screenplay by Norman Snider.

Variety says the film, formerly titled “Bagman,” stars Spacey as the once high-powered lobbyist whose bribery schemes and fraudulent dealings with Indian casinos ultimately landed him in prison.

Gary Howsam, Bill Marks and George Vitezakis are producing the film, which will begin shooting in Toronto this month. Richard Rionda Del Castro, Donald Zuckerman, Patricia Eberle and Lewin Webb are executive producing alongside Dana Brunetti for Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions.
