Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Kevin Spacey (right) will join ac­tors Ansel El­gort and Taron Eger­ton in the movie adap­ta­tion of the pop­u­lar 1987 mini-se­ries, Bil­lion­aire Boys Club.

In the film, Spacey will por­tray Bev­erly Hills high­roller Ron Levin, while El­gort will play financial ge­nius Joe Hunt and Eger­ton will es­say the role of ten­nis pro Dean Karny, re­ports va­ri­ety.com.

The movie will fol­low the true story of the rise and fall of Hunt and Karny, who ran a Ponzi scheme called the Bil­lion­aire Boys Club, which col­lapsed when Levin’s in­vest­ment turned out to be worth­less. Hunt turned to mur­der to raise funds and was con­victed in 1987 of killing Levin. Karny served as the state’s wit­ness in the trial.

Film­maker James Cox will di­rect the movie.
