Ridley Scott Kevin Spacey Christopher Plummer

Ridley Scott has broken his silence about his decision to re-shoot the entirety of his new movie All the Money In the World, replacing the disgraced Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in the lead role.

When the news broke in late October that Spacey had been accused by numerous men of inappropriate sexual conduct, the British director was forced into a difficult decision. He announced back on November 8th that he would re-cast the role of oil magnate John Paul Getty III with Christopher Plummer in the role instead of Spacey, shooting all of his scenes again while still intending to honour the December 22nd release date.

It’s a daunting task, but Scott told Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday (November 29th) that everything was on course to meet the original deadline.

Kevin Spacey

British police are investigating the disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey over a second sexual assault alleged to have taken place in London, it has been reported.

The 58 year old Hollywood actor had already been subject to an investigation from Scotland Yard, following an allegation that he forced himself onto a man at his flat in the British capital in 2008, which was launched earlier this month.

The Old Vic Reveals 20 Complaints Of Inappropriate Behaviour Against Kevin Spacey


Kevin Spacey

The Old Vic theatre has received 20 personal testimonies of inappropriate behaviour against Kevin Spacey during his time as artistic director at the London venue, it has confirmed.

An investigation opened by The Old Vic, following allegations that the actor had sexually assaulted a number of male staff members and actors while working there between 2004 and 2015, led to 20 individuals coming forward to claim sexual misconduct inflicted on them by Spacey.

Releasing a statement to the media on Thursday (November 16th), the venue said that a “cult of personality” had been allowed to build up around Spacey, and that his status and stardom made people – in particular junior staff and actors – reluctant to come forward.

'All The Money In The World' Reshoots Replacing Kevin Spacey Will Cost Millions


Kevin Spacey

Though removing Kevin Spacey from upcoming Ridley Scott film 'All The Money In The World' was undoubtedly the best decision after a slew of accusations against the actor, alleging sexual assault at various stages over the past 30 or so years, it's not going to be a cheap move to pull off. The film's set to hit the big screen in just over a month, and with Christopher Plummer jumping on board in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty, those working on the picture have to pull out all the stops to make sure it'll be ready in time.

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.

Kevin Spacey To Be Edited Out Of An Entire Film, Replaced By Christopher Plummer


Kevin Spacey Christopher Plummer Ridley Scott

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!
