Originally titled Bagman to avoid confusion, Casino Jack sees Spacey as the business/con man doing deals and defrauding left, right and centre, while spinning in the most exclusive of political circles.
As this is a recent real-life story the trailer doesn’t hold back and there’s seemingly enough flair in George Hickenlooper’s direction and with Barry Pepper and Kelly Preston on hand to lend support Spacey looks like having another winner on his hands.
I know there’s the Lex Luthor connection but there are moments, particularly towards the end of the trailer where Spacey is a dead ringer for Gene Hackman.
The film, and Abramoff himself, will be released in December of this year.
