Spacey was axed from the film, "All the Money in the World", directed by Ridley Scott, which premieres on Friday, Dec. 22. The film's release date of December 22nd Stateside is expected to be met with new scenes shot over the coming weeks.
According to Deadline, director Ridley Scott and Imperative Entertainment producers have now chose to replace Kevin Spacey in their finished movie All The Money In The World.
More fallout from the sexual harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, as the Oscar victor is cut from an already shot movie, set to hit theaters within weeks.
Movie cast agreed to re-shoot all scenes involving Spacey, who played the part of a reclusive, aging oil tycoon and donned heavy makeup and prosthetics and replacing him with actor Christopher Plummer.More news: Sacked Mugabe deputy vows to return to lead Zimbabwe
The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son a year ago, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts. All the Money in the World chronicles the true life saga of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and his mother's desperate attempt to convince his insanely wealthy grandfather (Spacey/Plummer) to pay the ransom. However, I'm sure Spacey was already paid for the film, so regardless of what happens with the re-shoots, unless Sony asks for its money back, he won't be suffering financially.
Spacey's career has been battered in recent weeks following Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp's revelation that he was sexually harassed when he was 14.
A lawyer for Spacey did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Wednesday.
