The two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey will be replaced by Christopher Plummer in the upcoming movie about oil magnate John Paul Getty.
According to reports, Christopher Plummer was originally the first choice for Spacey's role, playing John Paul Getty, but studio executives wanted a bigger name. Co-stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg will be part of the reshoot, Deadline Hollywood reported. This comes following sexual assault and harassment allegations against Spacey.
"All the Money in the World" was primed for a plush awards season release from distributor Sony Pictures Entertainment and its advertising campaign, which prominently features Spacey, has been public for about a month already.
But rather than push the film to 2018, Deadline reports that Sony is cutting Spacey out of the movie, reshooting his scenes with Oscar victor Christopher Plummer, and keeping the film's December release date.
It is a race against the clock, because to be eligible for Oscar contention, the film must hit theaters before the end of the year.
"To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son", Unruh said, flanked by her daughter and lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented hundreds of clergy sexual abuse victims.
The latest accusation against Spacey came Wednesday, when a former television news anchor accused him of sexually molesting her son a year ago when he was 18.
Spacey has said that he does not remember the incident Rapp describes, but apologised in a statement for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour" he might have displayed.
