"Out of order?! You're out of order!" Casino Jack is the feature film version of the infamous Casino Jack and the United States of Money story (watch the trailer for that doc) that stars the always awesome Kevin Spacey as political lobbyist Jack Abramoff. I'm not sure how fictional this version is compared to the true story, but it looks great. I love the trailer, it's such a perfect introduction to this flick. Spacey has a spark to him that not many other actors have and I love seeing him in this role, even if it is a little over-the-top, but screw it. Plus, I personally love the film versions of stories like this more than documentaries. Watch below!
Watch the official trailer for George Hickenlooper's Casino Jack:

A hot shot Washington DC lobbyist named Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey) and his protégé go down hard as their schemes to peddle influence on Capitol Hill lead to corruption and murder. Based on the true story.
Casino Jack is directed by veteran filmmaker George Hickenlooper, of films like Hearts of Darkness, Grey Knight, Persons Unknown, The Big Brass Ring, Mayor of the Sunset Strip and Factory Girl. The screenplay was written by Norman Snider, mostly a TV writer of a few features like Dead Ringers and Body Parts. ATO (Art Takes Over) Pictures is bringing Casino Jack to limited theaters starting in December later this year.
Love it already!

the film versions are usually better because theyre made to entertain you, not bore you to death as with most documentaries, even if they bend the truth as far as they can and still say based on true events but kevin spacey is always great, must have to see this

so was that Spacey doing Pacino from Scent of a Woman??? "This whole hearing is out of order" not sure if I wanna watch this... also is this tied into the documentary Casino Jack and the United States of America?
