STAGE TUBE: Kevin Spacey Chronicles RICHARD III in 'Now: In The Wings On A World Stage' Documentary- Watch Trailer Now!
Superstar of the stage and screen Kevin Spacey has been on fire this year. The second season of House of Cards was released earlier this month by Netflix, but that is not all that he's had on his plate recently. Spacey, the Artistic Director of London's Old Vic, recently concluded an extended run as the title character in Richard III, which which he toured the world as a part of the Bridge Project. Now, Spacey will self-distribute a documentary film on his experience in the play, titled 'Now: In The Wings On A World Stage'. Check out the just-released trailer below!
On the film's title, Spacey told Deadline: "It's the first word of the play, "Now is the winter of our discontent." But it's also the significance of how on the stage, it is all about now, what's happening right in front of your eyes at that moment, and then it's gone. To be able to have a film that reveals so much about what that experience is like, will be really cool for people. I did not set out to make a lovey pat on the back, some film that is only for your theater friends. I specifically intended to make a film that would appeal to people who don't go to the theater at all."
