Last-minute reshoots as Spacey is replaced by Plummer in movie

Kevin Spacey cut from 'All the Money in the World,' scenes to be reshot with Christopher Plummer

In the wake of fresh allegations of sexual harassment, Kevin Spacey has been replaced by Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott's upcoming film about oil magnate J Paul Getty, just a month before its release. As of now, the release date remains unchanged despite the reshoots, but insiders say that if anyone can pull off reshoots and still make the holiday release date, it's Scott. Scott is also determined to to keep the film's December 22 release date. Variety adds that reshoots will take place over the next two weeks and Wahlberg and Williams are expected to be involved (let's hope their wigs are better than the one Kate Mara wore in the Fantastic Four reshoots).

Despite the age difference between the two actors - at 87, Plummer is nearly 30 years Spacey's senior - the recasting will come as a welcome development for director Ridley Scott.

Plummer will now play USA millionaire and oil tycoon J. Paul Getty in the story about the 1973 kidnapping of his teenage grandson John Paul Getty III.

But rather than push the film to 2018, Deadline reports that Sony is cutting Spacey out of the movie, reshooting his scenes with Oscar victor Christopher Plummer, and keeping the film's December release date. According to Deadline, the decision to replace Spacey and reshoot all of his scenes was "unanimous" among the film's cast and crew.




This latest development comes after Netflix axed Spacey's hit show House Of Cards.

Former television news anchor Heather Unruh said that her son did not report the crime at the time, largely out of embarrassment and fear, The Independent wrote.

Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October. Regarding that decision, TriStar issued a statement, noting, "All the Money in the World is a superb film".

A lawyer for Spacey did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Wednesday.
