Kevin Spacey Cut From Ridley Scott Movie

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

On Wednesday, Deadline reported that director Ridley Scott, in concert with Imperative Entertainment's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, opted to remove Kevin Spacey from Scott's forthcoming movie All The Money In The World, which is completely finished, and will give his role to Christopher Plummer.

The film is expected to open on December 22.

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.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, the two leads in the film, agreed to participate in the reshoots.

"All the Money in the World" relives the events surrounding the kidnapping of John Paul Getty's 16-year old grandson and the boy's mother's effort to convince the billionaire to pay the ransom, which he didn't.

The decision follows more sexual misconduct allegations against the Oscar-winner from a woman who says he touched her 18-year-old son in MA last year. Scott was apparently particularly incensed that a film he and others worked hard to make would be hobbled by Spacey, so he took charge of finding a fix.

In the wake of the allegations, Sony Pictures also pulled the flick from the American Film Institute Fest and said in a statement that despite it being a "superb film", considering the ample allegations around the actor, it would be "inappropriate to celebrate at a gala".

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

At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Unruh said her son met Spacey at a restaurant and was "star-struck".

U.S. actor Kevin Spacey is to be erased from a completed Hollywood film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him.

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

Spacey's representatives say he is seeking unspecified treatment.
