In a race against time, Ridley Scott cuts out Kevin Spacey

In a race against time, Ridley Scott cuts out Kevin Spacey

But he will now be replaced by Christopher Plummer in scenes which must be quickly reshot in time for the release date.

The film also stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams in key roles and the duo are believed to return for reshoots. Interestingly, Plummer was the original choice for the part but studio bigwigs wanted a bigger name. Plummer won an Oscar for his work on Beginners. Scott made the decision to recast Spacey from All the Money in the World in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations brought against the actor by multiple people.

After sexual assault allegations were made against Spacey last week, All the Money in the World was pulled from its November 16 premiere at AFI Fest in Los Angeles. Ms. Unruh said her son panicked and froze while Spacey insisted he come with him to a private after-hours party to drink with him.

As reported by Variety, reshoots with Plummer as J. Paul Getty will take eight to 10 days and cost over $10 million, with Imperative Entertainment footing the entire bill.

Former journalist Heather Unruh gave a press conference accusing the actor of sexually assaulting her teenage son.

The unprecedented decision, which comes just over a month before the film is due to be released, came hours after a former TV news anchor said Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son past year at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

A lawyer for Spacey didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story". "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".

Meanwhile, more allegations continue to emerge against Spacey, the latest from former United States news anchor Heather Unruh, who claims that Spacey plied her 18-year-old son with alcohol at a restaurant in 2016, before grabbing his genitals.

Netflix also recently announced that it has canned a planned biopic of Gore Vidal, which was also set to star Spacey, as well as axing him from "House of Cards".
