Bagman Shows Political Corruption in America's Heartland

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Kevin Spacey will star in a new crime thriller called Bagman, which covers political corruption in the United States and this trailer shows politicians at their worst. Loosely based on a true story Spacey plays Jack Abramoff a "hustler" and swindler of First Nations People who offer casino projects on their tribal lands (Trailer). However, scandal and greed swindle the tribes out of profits as Abramoff proves that "democracy is...non-existent" (Trailer). View an early trailer for Bagman until the film releases in 2010 or early 2011.

A partial synopsis for the Bagman here:

"Lobbyists are known for being slick, charismatic, fast-talking schemers. But none are good as Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey). There’s nothing he won’t do to take care of his gorgeous wife Pam (Kelly Preston) and their beautiful kids. Pam joins Jack’s dad Frank in telling Jack to slow down, to be more careful. But they don’t get it: Jack’s a hustler.

Of course Jack can’t do it all on his own. His protégé, Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper) carries some of the workload. Scanlon’s young, he likes to party, and he loves money more than Jack does. Scanlon works hard to keep his spoiled fiancée Emily (Rachelle LeFevre) happy. Their business model is simple. They bribe, they coerce, and they make promises they never intend to keep -- and in the end, they always come out on top. They rule Washington DC, control Senators & Congressmen, and influence key decisions of the most powerful country in the world" (Trailer).

Release Date: 2010-11.

Director: George Hickenlooper.

Writer: Norman Snider.

Cast: Kevin Spacey, Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston, Jon Lovitz, Graham Greene, and Rachelle LeFevre.
