Actor Kevin Spacey got the lead role in Casino Jack, an upcoming drama thriller movie based on the true story of lobbyist Jack Abramoff. The film is directed by George Hickenlooper. Here’s the first official movie trailer of Casino Jack:
“Casino Jack lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey). Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob–connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.”
Besides Kevin Spacey, the cast also includes Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston, Jon Lovitz, Conrad Pla, Christian Campbell, Yannick Bisson, Spencer Garrett, Hannah Endicott-Douglas, and David Fraser. The movie Casino Jack should be released sometime in December.
