It’s been nearly a year since Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of attempting to seduce him when he was underage.
But good news for Kevin fans….his new movie The Billionaire Boys Club, starring Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, and Emma Roberts will be released on digital and VOD in July, with a theatrical release in August!
“We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person’s behavior — that were not publicly known when the film was made almost 2.5 years ago — do not tarnish the release,” indie distributor Vertical Entertainment said in a statement.
“We don’t condone sexual harassment on any level and we fully support victims of it. At the same time, this is neither an easy nor insensitive decision to release this film in theaters, but we believe in giving the cast, as well as hundreds of crew members who worked hard on the film, the chance to see their final product reach audiences.”
In November, a rep for Spacey said he was “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.”
