Kevin Spacey Working On His English Accent

Thursday, March 3 by

Everyone is getting on board the “quality TV” bandwagon, and now that includes such names as David Fincher and (again) Kevin Spacey. The project is called “House of Cards,” a series based on the novel and British miniseries:

“The political thriller … is set at the end of Margaret Thatcher‘s tenure as prime minister and follows a British politician with his eye on the top job.”

Fincher is executive producing along with Spacey and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenwriter Eric Roth. It hasn’t been shopped to networks yet. I can guess that it probably won’t be on AMC, since the whole political thriller angle is pretty much covered by “Rubicon” on that network. But then again maybe the drawing power of Spacey and Fincher would offset that. (via Deadline)
