Kevin Spacey will appear in his first big screen production since allegations of sexual assault were made against him a year ago.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain dies in a French hotel room, Barnaby Joyce's eldest daughter skips his controversial interview and Tom Ballard strongly denies indecently assaulting an aspiring comedian.

The film also stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Suki Waterhouse.

The film was shelved after actor Anthony Rapp accused the Oscar victor of making unwanted sexual advances towards him in the 1980s, when he was 14, in an online expose previous year.

Now, Spacey will star in Billionaire Boys Club playing real-life con artist Ron Levin.

Billionaire Boys Club was filmed two years ago.

It focuses on a get-rich-quick scam which preyed on the families of wealthy Harvard school boys in Los Angeles in the early 1980s.

In a statement reacting to the allegations, Spacey came out as gay and claimed not to remember the alleged incident, said to have happened in 1986 while he was 26 and Rapp was 14. Just last fall, Ridley Scott chose to re-shoot 400 scenes in his movie All the Money in the World to replace the publicly toxic Spacey with Christopher Plummer (Plummer would receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the role).

Meanwhile, prosecutors are reportedly reviewing a sex crimes case against the actor which was presented to lawmakers in April by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
