He'll star in Irish gangster pic

CANNES — Kevin Spacey has signed to star in Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s “Ordinary Decent Criminal,” which Icon Entertainment Intl. has picked up for worldwide sale.

The $12 million pic is a gangster movie set in contemporary Ireland with a black comic twist, written by Gerard Stembridge. Spacey plays a charismatic criminal who pushes his luck too far and finds himself scrambling to save his skin when his enemies gang up against him.

The film is set to shoot in Ireland this fall. Producer is Jonathan Cavendish of Little Bird Films. It’s co-financed by the Arts Council of England’s Greenlight Fund, the Irish Film Board and the NRW film fund.

“Ordinary Decent Criminal” joins a full Icon slate for Cannes which also includes Robert Redford’s “The Legend of Bagger Vance,” Atom Egoyan’s “Felicia’s Journey,” Oliver Parker’s “An Ideal Husband” and a new Brit pic “Greenwich Mean Time.”

The latter pic is the directorial debut of Luke Watson, produced by Taylor Hackford and written by Simon Mirren. It’s described as a London-based contempo drama about four friends, and is due to shoot this fall.
