House of Cards star Kevin Spacey is set to play American writer Gore Vidal in Netflix’s upcoming biopic GORE.

Michael Hoffman will direct the 1980s set film with UK producer Andy Paterson producing.

For those of you unfamiliar, Vidal was an author, playwright and ocassional political candidate. Currently, the film is shooting in Rome, but will move next month to Vidal’s longtime villa in Ravello, a village on the Amalfi Coast.

Vidal was fascinated with Italy, spending large periods of time in Rome in the early 1960s and later between the Italian capital city and a grand villa called La Rondinaia in the Amalfi Coast village of Ravello. There, he entertained many famous faces including Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Greta Garbo, Paul Newman and many other.

Vidal died in 2012 in Hollywood Hills.
