ATO Pictures has released the newest trailer for the true-life comedy Casino Jack, starring two–time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey and directed by George Hickenlooper (Factory Girl, The Man From Elysian Fields). This story of a man who resorts to awe–inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to secure the finer things in life, hits theaters on December 29, 2010.
In Casino Jack, Spacey plays Jack Abramoff, a man hell bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer. He plays in the same game as the highest of rollers and resorts to awe-inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants.
Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, Casino Jack lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of Jack Abramoff. Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.
Casino Jack also stars Kelly Preston and Rachelle Lefevre and is produced by Gary Howsam, Bill Marks and George Vitetzakis from an original screenplay by Norman Snider.
