Dunaway will play Tasha in Franco Nero’s film that shot in Italy and is in post production.
Faye Dunaway has replaced Vanessa Redgrave and stars opposite Kevin Spacey in the Italian film L’Uomo Che Disegno Dio, translated as The Man Who Drew God.
The movie is in post production and is being shopped at Cannes by international sales agent The Motus Studios. Redgrave earlier held discussions about possibly joining the cast, but decided against signing on.
Dunaway played the role of Tasha. On the movie front, she is best known for playing the stylish bank robber Bonnie Parker in Bonnie and Clyde, alongside co-star Warren Beatty, and the hard-hitting TV programmer Diana Christensen in Network. Her other film credits include Chinatown and Three Days of the Condor.
Dunaway made her Broadway debut in 1962 in A Man for All Seasons and last appeared in William Alfred’s The Curse of an Aching Heart in 1982.
Spacey was cast in Franco Nero’s Italian film, which is his first movie since sexual assault and misconduct allegations derailed his career in 2017. The film, directed by Nero, was shot in Italy.
The Man Who Drew God will mark Spacey’s first role in over four years. Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp told a BuzzFeed reporter in 2017 that Spacey made a pass at him when he was only 14. Spacey would go on to share an apology statement to Rapp via Twitter and used his statement to come out as a gay man for the first time.
