The actor was discussing Spacey in the light of sexual allegations against him
In the aftermath of the staggering Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations, a number of victims of other alleged sexual predators have bravely come out to tell their story. Amongst those accused was Kevin Spacey who, in response, said he couldn’t recall the incident in question and revealed he was gay.
The 46-year-old 'Star Trek' star was encouraged to speak out about his harrowing experience after seeing the multitude of women coming forward to express their own ordeals at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and others. He knew that now was the right time to talk and be heard.
All the Money in the World had to recast Kevin Spacey after allegations of sexual harassment
Following countless allegations of sexual harassment and assault against film producer Harvey Weinstein, a number of other stars have been accused of similar misconduct - including Hollywood actor, Kevin Spacey.
Sony and the film's financiers Imperative Entertainment were thinking about pushing the movie back to a January 2018 release, but with FX series 'Trust' from Danny Boyle also exploring the story of Getty's kidnapping, they're keen to not have to go to battle with the show, keeping their USP with a December drop.
Sir Ridley Scott is to re-shoot all of Spacey's scenes in 'All the Money in the World', with 87 year old actor Christopher Plummer in his place.
They say that where there’s a will, there’s a way, but that could be stretching it in the case of the imminently released movie All the Money in the World, whose producers have decided to recast the film with Christopher Plummer replacing the disgraced Kevin Spacey, a little over a month before its official cinematic release.
The movie is directed by Sir Ridley Scott and was to star Kevin Spacey in the lead role as the late oil magnate John Paul Getty.
However, since the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey surfaced a fortnight ago and which have kept on coming, Scott and Sony/TriStar have taken the decision to re-shoot all of Spacey’s scenes with 87 year old actor Christopher Plummer in his place – but still intend to honour the scheduled release date of December 22nd!
