Kevin Spacey will return to the big screen at least one more time in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

The Oscar winner, who was sacked from Netflix’s House of Cards series following the claims, is set to appear in the upcoming Billionaire Boys Club.

Its newly-released trailer, which was filmed more than two years ago ahead of the film’s release next month, confirms Spacey has kept his role.

In the new movie, which also stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Suki Waterhouse, Spacey plays Ron Levin, a con artist who masterminded a Ponzi scheme in 1980s Los Angeles.

The Standard has approached Vertical Entertainment, the company distributing the film, for comment.

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.

Director Ridley Scott cut him from All The Money In The World, which had already finished filming.

Christopher Plummer was drafted in as a replacement, just weeks before the film hit theatres.

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

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