Shocker: Kevin Spacey Dropped From 'All The Money In The World;' J Paul Getty Role Recast With Christopher Plummer

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

Ridley Scott and the producers of All the Money in the World have come up with a solution to rid themselves of the Kevin Spacey problem in their upcoming film, they are editing him out of it completely, with Sony's full support. Re-shoots of the key scenes are expected to commence immediately.

This could be seen as a risky move given the December 22 release date but maybe not as risky as keeping Kevin Spacey employed in the part.

All the Money in the World features an ensemble cast including Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.

Ridley Scott, along with producers Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, chose to remove all of Kevin Spacey's scenes from the film fearing that the sex scandal could hurt the film.

The director also pulled the movie, about the 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, from the closing closing-night screening of the AFI Fest.

According to Deadline, which first reported the news, Christopher Plummer will replace Spacey in the film's most prominent supporting role.

If a deal were to be worked out, Disney would also take control of Fox's TV production wing as well as worldwide assets. It is reported that FOX is hoping a news and sports focus would help them as the world of pay-TV is changing.

The 58-year-old actor was recently faced with allegations of sexual assault from Heather Unrah, who in a press conference claimed Spacey grabbed her 18-year-old son's genitals inside a bar on Nantucket Island.

It is not clear how Scott will produce the Spacey-Plummer swap, but bringing back the actors for filming and finishing the movie on this razor-tight schedule is an enormous undertaking. The family made a decision to come forward, she said, after others went public with allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey and other celebrities. One challenge for such VFX work is that many of Spacey's scenes were shot in different locations.

Former US TV news anchor Heather Unruh says her son was assaulted by the star after meeting him in a bar a year ago.

Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s.

Vox has reached out to Spacey's representatives for comment.
