Kevin Spacey will star in the indie comedy “Father of Invention” reports Variety.
The story centers on a humble inventor-turned-egomaniacal billionaire who loses it all when one of his inventions goes horribly awry. After eight years in federal prison, he returns bankrupt, homeless and determined to rebuild his reputation and fortune.
Trent Cooper (“Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector”) will direct from a script he penned with Jonathan Krane and Nichole Beattie. Spacey, Krane, Dana Brunetti and Ken Barbet are producing.
