Christopher Plummer to replace Kevin Spacey in completed J. Paul Getty biopic

Shocker: Kevin Spacey Dropped From 'All The Money In The World;' J Paul Getty Role Recast With Christopher Plummer

That date may still change, but Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are returning to reshoot the scenes, and the race is on to hit the now extremely tight deadline.

"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.

The mounting allegations of sexual assault involving Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey are taking a mounting toll on his career. He is best known for playing Captain Von Trapp in the 1965 film The Sound of Music. According to sources, he worked on it for eight to 10 days. He won his first Oscar in 2012 for the film "Beginners". Those circumstances were dramatically different than the decision that was made today on All The Money In The World. Plummer is slated to replace Spacey as J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott's film "All the Money in the World".

The director also pulled the movie, about the 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, from the closing closing-night screening of the AFI Fest. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son's captors become increasingly volatile and brutal.

Several other allegations of misconduct have since surfaced, including a claim by US TV presenter Heather Unruh that the actor groped her 18-year-old son in a bar last year.

The actor has since been accused by more than dozen men of either sexually harassing or assaulting them. "It harmed him, and it can not be undone". "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story".

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.

United States network Netflix has axed further production of Mr Spacey's House of Cards drama, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it would no longer give the actor a special Emmy award, and his agent and publicist dropped him as a client.
