Kevin Spacey is getting cut out of Ridley Scott’s finished film All the Money in the World and replaced by Christopher Plummer just over one month before it’s supposed to hit theatres.
People close to the production who were not authorised to speak publicly said Wednesday that Plummer is commencing reshoots immediately in the role of J Paul Getty. According to the report, all of Spacey scenes will be reshot. Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are expected to participate.
Scott is intending to keep the film’s December 22 release date.
“They are committed to the 12/22 date -- if anyone can pull it off it’s Scott,” a source told AFP, asking for anonymity.
Plummer will now play US millionaire J. Paul Getty in the story about the 1973 kidnapping of his teenage grandson John Paul Getty III.
The film was originally set to have its world premiere at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles on November 16 but was pulled earlier this week amid the sexual harassment reports surrounding Spacey.
Spacey has also been fired from House of Cards.
Representatives for Scott did not immediately return email messages seeking comment.
