Kevin Spacey is set to join Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton in James Cox’s film adaptation of “Billionaires Boys Club”.
The story story deals with how financial genius Joe Hunt (Elgort) and tennis pro Dean Karny (Egerton) ran a Ponzi scheme which allowed them to lead a lavish lifestyle.
The scheme collapsed when the investment of high-roller Ron Levin (Spacey) turned out to be worthless and Hunt was convicted of killing Levin. Judd Nelson, Ron Silver and Brian McNamara took on the roles in a previous 1987 mini-series version.
James Cox (“Wonderland”) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Captain Mauzner. Holly Wiersma and Cassian Elwes are producing.
