Kevin Spacey film set for July release after sexual misconduct claims

Supporters of the Time’s Up movement will not be happy to learn that the time is up for Kevin Spacey to be stuck in the doghouse.

“Billionaire Boys Club” — starring Spacey and Ansel Elgort — is finally set for release on July 19, two and a half years after filming wrapped. And Spacey is featured in the trailer.

Just as the producers were about to make a deal to distribute the movie last October, Spacey was accused of sexual assault by “Rent” actor Anthony Rapp. Then other men came forward.

The movie — based on the true story of a Los Angeles Ponzi-scheming ring in the 1980s — also features Emma Roberts, Suki Waterhouse, Billie Lourd and, as Andy Warhol, Cary Elwes.

Spacey was cut from the film “All the Money in the World” after his scandal and fired from “House of Cards.”

Richard DuPont — who plays a drug dealer in “Boys Club,” as does twin brother, Robert — said it is time for Spacey to reappear on the big screen.

“People have such short memories,” DuPont told me. “And Spacey is almost unrecognizable in a beard and glasses.”
