Abramoff_2Director Alex Gibney, on a roll after winning an Oscar for "Taxi from the Dark Side," is next turning his attention to Jack Abramoff and the lobbying biz.

At Netroots Nation in Austin on Friday, he will give a preview of his new doc "Casino Jack: The United States of Money," which is bound to be a very sobering look into money and politics, not to mention the power dances at Signatures.

Gibney is part of a panel on how the Internet has changed the way that Washington works, and he’ll be joined by HuffPost’s Roy Sekoff, strategist Naomi Seligman Steiner, strategist Michael Silberman, MySpace IMPACT public affairs spokesman Lee Brenner and moderator Jim Vanderhei.

Magnolia Pictures is releasing "Casino Jack" in 2009, and its’s being produced by Participant Media.
