Kevin Spacey, 53, was axed and replaced in Ridley Scott’s new $40m film – six weeks before its expected release! As RadarOnline.com has learned, the horrified movie director quickly called for an emergency reshoot after news broke of Spacey’s alleged sexual assaults. Everyone in the cast and crew reportedly agreed to a remake, and are now “determined” to stick to the movie’s December 22 premiere date.
Christopher Plummer, 87, is the actor replacing Spacey in the role of late oil tycoon J. Paul Getty. He was reportedly the first choice for the role, until executives decided they needed a bigger Hollywood star.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott made the decision to replace Spacey just this Wednesday, and the reshoots are starting immediately.
Before his sexual assault scandals, Spacey talked fondly of his role in All The Money In The World. He even went as far as to call it “one of the most remarkable experiences” in his career.
