Kevin Spacey Being Replaced By Christopher Plummer In Already Completed Movie

Kevin Spacey Being Replaced By Christopher Plummer In Already Completed Movie

A MA mother on Wednesday accused Spacey of sexually assaulting her 18-year-old son on the holiday island of Nantucket last year and said police had opened a criminal investigation. We already knew that Christopher Plummer would be replacing Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty, and despite logistical difficulties, reshoots are only expected to take eight to 10 days.

All of Spacey's scenes will be reshot. In the upcoming film also starring Michelle Williams and mark Wahlberg. However, the movie's distributor, Sony Pictures Entertainment, is still keen to keep the movie's December 22nd United States release date, which will allow it to be eligible for next year's Oscars, so the work will have to be done exceptionally quickly. The director's publicist Simon Halls has confirmed the switch.

The film chronicles the events surrounding the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and his mother's attempt to convince J Paul Getty, his billionaire grandfather, to pay the ransom.

Plummer (photo), 87, told Confidential on Sunday that he understands the fascination around the abrupt and highly unusual recasting but "I'm used to big roles and lots of words". The hope is that with Spacey removed from the film, All the Money in the World can still make its presence felt during awards season, and maybe grab enough gold to boost box office and help Imperative make back some of the money they'll be spending to make it seem like Kevin Spacey was never a part of their production.

Plummer is probably best known for The Sound of Music.

As to whether the unusually late reshoot is a good idea, the "Beginners" Oscar-winner demurred on answering that.

One of the people close to the production said that Scott's plan caught Sony by surprise, but the studio is supporting the switch.
