Kevin Spacey smiles as he returns to work on new movie after misconduct claims

Kevin Spacey has been spotted in Turin, Italy as he prepares to film his first movie since being the subject of multiple sexual misconduct allegations in 2017. 

The actor, 61, was seen sitting at a café table clinking glasses with actor Robert Davi as well as walking through the city with his manager Evan Lowenstein, 47. 

Kevin was seen wearing face masks for the outing, including one with Banksy’s Girl With Balloon mural printed on the front of it and a companion attempted to shield the actor’s face from cameras as he got into a car. 

Kevin will play a detective who was wrongly accused of being a paedophile in the low-budget Italian film L’uomo che disegnò Dio (The Man who drew God).

Franco Nero will direct the film and will play a blind artist who uses people’s voices to draw their exact features but ends up wrongly accused of sex abuse.  

The director, 79, said: ‘It’s a true story — the story of a man who, though blind, creates sculptures of people’s faces.




‘Among the actors, I made contact with Kevin Spacey. We’re waiting for the end of the pandemic to pick up from where our preparatory work was interrupted.’

It will be Kevin’s first film since he was accused of sexual harassment and improper behaviour by multiple men in 2017. 

One of the accusers, Anthony Rapp, claimed to have been 14 at the time of the incident while Kevin was 26, but the actor – who was fired from the Netflix series House Of Cards after the allegations surfaced – has refuted the claims. 

He said he did not remember such an encounter with the man but apologised if the allegations were true. 

Others also came forward with similar claims of sexual assault and groping while Kevin was working in London. 

Following the claims, Kevin decided to move from Hollywood and live in the UK under less attention.
