Oscar winner Kevin Spacey will star in the historical drama ‘1242 – Gateway To The West’, Deadline reported.
This is the first film starring Spacey since the 2017 scandal and accusations of sexual harassment.
The film tells the story of Genghis Khan’s grandson Batu Khan, who was elected commander in chief of the western part of the Mongol empire. A skilled military commander, he won battles from China to Persia and was given responsibility for the invasion of Europe but in 1242 Khan is confronted by a deeply spiritual man and a castle in Hungary that halts his invasion of Europe and ultimately causes his downfall.
Spacey will embody the film's main villain, an Italian cardinal. "Gateway To The West" will receive a presentation at the Cannes Film Market in mid-May. Filming will begin in October.
After accusations from several men, Spacey was fired from the Netflix series "House of Cards "and ordered to pay $31 million in compensation for delayed filming.
