I am so happy to announce that Virginia has a new movie role. She will star opposite Kevin Spacey as his ex-wife Lorainne  in the comedy “Father of Invention.”

The movie will be produced by Trigger Street Prods.’ Spacey and Dana Brunetti plus Jonathan Krane and Ken Barbet. Trent Cooper directs from a script he wrote with Krane and Nichole Beatty. Scott Lumpkin exec produces. Lensing is under way.

“Father of Invention” 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 to discover his ex-wife (Virginia’s role) has spent his fortune and remarried.
