Kevin Spacey replaced by Christopher Plummer on Ridley Scott movie
KEVIN Spacey has been sacked from upcoming Ridley Scott crime thriller movie 'All the Money in the World' following numerous sexual misconduct allegations.
The Oscar-winning actor played John Paul Getty in the Sony film alongside Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams.
But following a slew of sexual misconduct allegations, the 58-year-old is going to be erased from the film entirely.
Spacey shot approximately two weeks of footage but will now be replaced by BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe-winning actor Christopher Plummer.
Wahlberg and Williams are thought to be involved in the re-shoots.
The film – which follows the kidnapping of the oil tycoon's grandson – was withdrawn from the American Film Institute (AFI) festival which takes place this month.
Spacey has been silent on social media since October 30 when he was accused by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp of allegedly making a sexual advance on him when he was just 14.
The House of Cards star offered a "sincerest apology" on Facebook before a flood of other allegations ensued.
People who have spoken out include a theatre usher, a bartender, a movie military adviser, son of Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfus and more.
Spacey has been axed from House of Cards and dropped by his agent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) since.
Creator of Netflix's hit show, Beau Willimon, claimed he "neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behaviour on set or off".
An anonymous crew member told BuzzFeed: "I saw that Beau said he had no idea, which I know is completely false.
"They had production meetings about Spacey's flirtatious behaviour toward crew and cast and it never made it any further than that. It was like a joke."
'All the Money in the World' is expected to be released on Dec. 22.
Deadline Hollywood reported the news first.
