Kevin Spacey is a ‘Billionaire Boy’ now!
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.
