Cannes-cel: Kevin Spacey With a Dead Something on His Head, Stalks a Woman in New Movie


Someone thinks it’s a good idea to produce a thriller starring Kevin Spacey, accused and sued as an alleged sexual predator. He hasn’t been seen in a movie in five years.

“Peter Five Eight” indeed marquees Spacey, wearing something dead on his head, a strange guy in a small town who stalks one woman and beds Rebecca DeMornay. (It’s hard to imagine she needed money this badly or couldn’t get other work.)

The director is first timer Michael Zaiko Hall.

Spacey’s co-star, Jet Jandreau, who, no you’ve never heard of, is listed as a producer. There is no distributor so far.

The trailer below looks pretty hideous.
