Kevin Spacey to be cut out of upcoming movie, replaced with Christopher Plummer – reports

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (REUTERS) – Sony Pictures and director Ridley Scott will reshoot scenes featuring actor Kevin Spacey in the upcoming movie “All the Money in the World,” following sexual misconduct allegations against the actor, trade magazines Variety and Deadline Hollywood reported on Wednesday (November 8).

Christopher Plummer will replace Spacey as the late U.S. oil billionaire Jean Paul Getty in the movie, about the 1973 kidnapping of his teenage grandson John Paul Getty III.

On Monday (November 6), Sony withdrew the movie from a Los Angeles film festival, where it was due to have a red carpet world premiere on November 16, but said it was going ahead with a planned U.S. movie theater release on December 22.

Spacey apologized last month to actor Anthony Rapp, who accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. Spacey’s representatives later said he was seeking unspecified treatment.

Reuters was unable to independently confirm any of the allegations against Spacey.
