Ultra-quick reshoots cutting Kevin Spacey out of new film

Ridley Scott, the British director of the thriller All The Money In the World, has made a decision to replace Spacey even though the film was finished weeks ago.

The surprising part of the recast is that Scott wants to keep the December 22 released date.

All the Money in the World features an ensemble cast including Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg. Director Ridley Scott is rushing to reshoot the new scenes with Plummer in order to make the film's scheduled release date of December 22. Scott is a maverick, and didn't shrink under the pressure to re-stage the key scenes involving J Paul Getty, the oilman who refused to pay a ransom after his grandson, John Paul Getty III was kidnapped.

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.

Several other allegations of misconduct have since surfaced, including a claim by US TV presenter Heather Unruh that the actor groped her 18-year-old son in a bar last year. According to Deadline, the decision to replace Spacey and reshoot all of his scenes was "unanimous" among the film's cast and crew.


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".

All the Money in the World, directed by Ridley Scott and produced by Sony, isn't the first to cut ties with the actor.

Actor Anthony Rapp and Harry Dreyfuss (the son of Richard Dreyfuss) have also said the actor assaulted them, and London police said they were investigating a 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey.

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

It was just last week that Netflix dumped Spacey from "House of Cards", the wildly popular political show.
