Kevin Spacey is being cut out of Ridley Scott's upcoming film All The Money In The World in the wake of mounting sexual harassment claims, according to reports. That means Plummer must begin reshoots immediately.
The surprising part of the recast is that Scott wants to keep the December 22 released date. Cast-members Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are reportedly cooperating with the reshoot, and the cast and crew's decision to redo Spacey's scenes with Plummer was unanimous. Imperative Entertainment financed the film, and Friedkin and Thomas produced along with Scott Free's Scott and Kevin J. Walsh, Quentin Curtis and Chris Clark.
The two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey will be replaced by Christopher Plummer in the upcoming movie about oil magnate John Paul Getty.
All the Money in the World, directed by Ridley Scott, is about the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty's teenage grandson.
Since then several others have come forward accusing him of predatory behaviour, including a woman who said Spacey had sexually assaulted her 18-year-old son last year. It had already been pulled from its premiere next week over the mounting allegations against Spacey.
The news of comes after Netflix had said that they would also not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey. He took over Spacey's role as J. Paul Getty, the industrialist who was named by the the richest living American in1966 by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October.
Spacey is now off getting "treatment" probably the same place Weinstein is, probably watching his career go up in flames all around him.
