man of invention

Craig Robinson, Heather Graham, Johnny Knoxville and Camilla Belle will co-star in a film with the Oscar-wining actor Kevin Spacey called Father of Invention. Spacey is set to also serve as producer with Trent Cooper at the helm, as both director and co-writer with Jonathan D. Krane. According to Slashfilm, Spacey will star as a “humble inventor turned egomaniacal billionaire” who goes to jail after one of his own inventions backfires. To make his way back into society he must reinvent his reputation and rebuild his family.

The hysterical Robinson will play a character who marries Spacey’s ex-wife after goes to jail, and now “enjoys the fruits of Spacey’s labor.” Later he helps Spacey get back in the game by finding him a job and getting him back on his feet. In the case of Robinson this sounds like a more serious role who has in the past made us laugh in films like Pineapple Express, Fanboys and the hit TV show The Office. Could it be that the laughs are over? I highly doubt it, but it’ll be interesting to see him play a more serious role, perhaps.

As for Belle, she’ll play Spacey’s daughter and Graham’s lover, who will keep it in the family by hooking up with Spacey. Yeap, that’s right, two of the hottest ladies in cinema are playing one anothers lovers. I’ll give you a moment.

So far, it sounds like twisted story with the possibility of some hot love scenes. It will be interesting to see what they all have to deliver.

What do you think of the film so far?
