Virginia Madsen Joins Father of Invention


Virginia Madsen will star opposite Kevin Spacey as his ex-wife in indie comedy Father of Invention, reports Variety.

Trent Cooper is directing from a script he wrote with Jonathan Krane and Nichole Beatty.

The film 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 to discover his ex-wife has spent his fortune and remarried.

Craig Robinson, Heather Graham, Johnny Knoxville and Camilla Belle also star.
