Ridley Scott is Reshooting His Upcoming Movie to Edit Kevin Spacey Out

As the accusations against Kevin Spacey continue to get worse, he will no longer have any screen time in Ridley Scott‘s soon-to-be-released film, All the Money in the World.

The film is a historical drama about the 1973 abduction of John Paul Getty III. The original plan was that Spacey would play oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, who refused to pay the ransom demanded by his grandson’s kidnappers.

Reports state that Scott will bring in actor Christopher Plummer and reshoot all the scenes where Spacey was supposed to appear. The decision was approved by production companies Imperative Entertainment, Sony Pictures and Scott Free Productions.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams also star in the film, and they will reportedly come back to reshoot a number of scenes as well. Sony insists that this will not force the film to be pushed back from its scheduled release date on December 22.

Spacey is facing enormous scrutiny as more and more figures have gone public and accused him of sexual assault. The allegations have cost Spacey multiple acting honorifics, and he will no longer be part of any future installments of Netflix’s House of Cards.
