The disgraced Oscar winner was removed from 2017’s All The Money In The World and Netflix sacked him from House Of Cards following the allegations.

But a newly released trailer for Billionaire Boys Club, filmed more than two years ago and due to be released next month, confirms Spacey has kept his role in the film.

He will play Ron Levin, a con artist who masterminded a Ponzi scheme in 1980s Los Angeles.

It also stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Suki Waterhouse.

Last year, the actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexual harassment.

In a statement reacting to the allegations, Spacey came out as gay and claimed not to remember the alleged incident, said to have happened in 1986 while he was 26 and Rapp was 14.

When the allegations against Spacey emerged, Netflix decided to remove him from the final season of House Of Cards while director Ridley Scott cut him from All The Money In The World, which had already finished filming.

A sexual assault charge against Spacey is being considered by prosecutors in Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles District Attorney confirmed to the Press Association the case was still being reviewed.
