While once one of the most respected actors in the business, Kevin Spacey is now pretty much poison to the industry, and every studio and network is doing all they can to distance themselves from the once-prized performers. The latest news comes in the form of All The Money in the World, from director Ridley Scott.

The movie is already finished and is currently set for a December 22 release date. And yet Scott has made a move to completely erase Spacey from the movie. According to Deadline, actor Christopher Plummer will be replacing Spacey as the character of J Paul Getty, and they will set to work to re-shoot all of his scenes immediately.

Plummer will then be cut into the existing version of the film, all in time to meet that ambitious December date. Actors Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams — along with Sony and the cast and crew — will also be cooperating to make sure these re-shoots happen.

This comes after there was a decision to pull the film “from the prestig[ious] closing-night slot of AFI Fest.” This angered both Scott and Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin, who were upset that the actions of one man could tank an entire film that Scott dropped everything to direct, and that many other people also worked hard on. Rather than just complain, they decided to re-shoot. It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out.

This is all one giant reactions to recent allegations against Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of making sexual advances both on the set of House of Cards, and in the past on underaged boys.

What do you think of this report? Is it the right move from Scott? Let us know down below!

    I wonder how much Harvey had to pay to get the spotlight off of him in the media. Question is, will the media settle for a few scapegoats or will the whole perversion of Hollywood come crashing down.

      not a lot, it was on his contract per harassment. And nothing over few hundred thousand. 30,000 first time never got as far as 500,000.. NOW, O’Reily had to pay over 60 million to jerking off on the phone to his staff. The comparison was they protected Weinstein because he got them money, O’Reily sold ads to old 67 year olds.

    That’s one way for a career to end…

    Plumber is 87, he’s a great actor, but makes me think they could have gotten someone like Bryan Cranston to be closer to Spacey’s age and not some Coen Bros trope of “evil old rich man.”

    This is some “1984” George Orwell – Salem Witch Trial thing going on. I’m all for punishing people for doing bad things but… Do we have any evidence at all that these people did anything? Audio? Video? Physical evidence? Impartial eyewitness?

    “He said, she said” (or in this case, “he said, he said”?) isn’t good enough for a court of law but, I guess, the court of public opinion is different. Good thing I’m not famous or someone might be accusing me of doing something bad 25+ years ago, too.
