Oscar winner Kevin Spacey is set to play the late iconic playwright and author Gore Vidal in the new Netflix original biopic “Gore” which is now in production in Italy. Andy Paterson is producing.
The project is currently shooting in Rome but will move next month to Vidal’s longtime villa La Rondinaia in Ravello on cliffs over the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The Amalfi Coast residence will feature prominently in the film, a place where Vidal entertained his vast network of high-profile friends and acquaintances which included Lauren Bacall, Paul Newman, Greta Garbo, Andy Warhol, Rudolf Nureyev, Susan Sarandon and Mick Jagger.
The study where Vidal regularly wrote will be meticulously reconstructed within the villa by production designer Patrizia Von Brandenstein (“Amadeus”).
