Kevin Spacey is set to star in and produce the indie comedy Father of Invention with Trent Cooper (Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector) directing from a script he wrote with Jonathan Krane and Nichole Beattie.

According to Variety, the story centers on a humble inventor-turned-egomaniacal billionaire who loses it all when one of his inventions goes horribly awry. After eight years in federal prison, he returns bankrupt, homeless and determined to rebuild his reputation and fortune.

No production date has been set.
