Kevin Spacey to Star in Television Series Project Adapted from House of Cards by Michael Dobbs

House of Cards by Michael Dobbs

Kevin Spacey is set to executive produce and star in a drama series project adapted from Michael Dobb's 1989 political thriller House of Cards, according to an article in The Hollywood Reporter. David Fincher (The Social Network) will direct the pilot, written by Beau Willimon.

House of Cards, the first in a trilogy of books by Dobbs to feature conservative British politician Francis Urquhart, was previously adapted for a 4-part BBC mini-series in 1990. The novel follows Urquhart as he schemes to become leader of his party, and ultimately Prime Minister.

The project has yet to be sold to a network.
