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!
The actor has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by a number of men.
Netflix have revealed that they have officially cut all ties with Kevin Spacey, announcing that they won't be working with the actor on the sixth season of 'House of Cards', and categorically stating that they will not be releasing their original film 'Gore', which stars and is produced by the actor.

The decision by the company comes after Anthony Rapp's sexual harassment allegations, with the 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor alleging that Spacey propositioned him at a party when he was just 14 years old. Spacey would have been 26 at the time.

Several current and former members of the Netflix show's crew alleged to CNN that Spacey had behaved inappropriately on set toward them.
Beset by accusations of sexual misconduct, actor Kevin Spacey has now been accused of sexually assaulting a male former employee on the set of his hit Netflix series ‘House of Cards’, it was reported yesterday evening.
In addition, eight former or current ‘House of Cards’ employees claimed that the 58 year old actor made the set of the series “a toxic workplace”, according to a CNN report on Thursday evening (November 2nd).
Their identities were withheld at their request, as they feared professional retribution, but all of them outlined Spacey’s behaviour as intimidating, with the actor allegedly targeting employees who were young and male, advancing on them with non-consensual touching and inappropriate comments.
Following his controversial statement earlier this week, a spokesperson has announced Spacey is "seeking evaluation and treatment".
After a week that has seen mounting allegations of sexual misconduct against him, actor Kevin Spacey has released a new statement saying that he is “seeking” treatment.
Spacey is one of several Hollywood figures who have dominated headlines in the last week accused of instances of sexual harassment or abuse, including filmmakers Brett Ratner and James Toback and veteran actor Dustin Hoffman.
The specific allegations against two-time Oscar-winner Spacey started earlier this week when actor Anthony Rapp claimed that Spacey had harassed him at a part when he was just 14 years old. Responding to that allegation, Spacey said that was “beyond horrified” and, while saying he didn’t recall the incident, was “sorry for the feelings [Rapp] describes having carried with him all these years.”

New allegations of sexual harassment have been mounting against Spacey, including from filmmaker Tony Montana.
New allegations of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey have emerged from a number of men, following the headline-grabbing accusation made by actor Anthony Rapp last week.
American filmmaker Tony Montana has claimed that he was groped by Spacey at the Coronet Bar in Los Angeles in 2003, according to an article by Radar Online published on Tuesday (October 31st).
“I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me,” Montana told the interviewer, saying that the ‘House of Cards’ actor had entered the establishment with a group of friends while he was editing a documentary. “He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package.”

The actor was accused of making sexual advances towards Anthony Rapp when he was just 14
The scandal surrounding Kevin Spacey is continuing to have large scale repercussions for the actor who has been accused of an inappropriate sexual advance on a 14-year-old actor over 30 years ago. Following Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp’s allegation, Spacey has been dropped as the recipient of a special Emmy Award he was due to receive next month.

It would seem the series was always going to end on its sixth season.
Netflix have confirmed that the currently in-production sixth season of their original series 'House of Cards' will be its last. The news comes after an allegation from 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor Anthony Rapp that the show's lead actor Kevin Spacey attempted to engage in sexual activity with him when he was just 14-years-old. Spacey would have been 26 at the time of the alleged attempted sexual assault.

It's worth noting that whilst Spacey says he does not remember the event taking place, he has apologised if it did indeed happen and said that he would blame "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".
McGowan has accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and has been a vocal critic of the current culture of Hollywood
Hollywood star Rose McGowan has led criticism against actor Kevin Spacey and accused him of using the revelation he now lives as a gay man to excuse allegedly making a sexual pass at an actor who was underage at the time.

Kevin Spacey was accused by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp of making a ‘drunken’ sexual advance towards him when he was 14 at the time and Spacey was 26.
Spacey's sexuality has nothing to do with his misconduct.
As allegations of sexual harassment within Hollywood continues to grow, Kevin Spacey becomes the latest to have the finger pointed at him as Anthony Rapp comes forward about an encounter when he was just a young teen. To make matters worse, Spacey's apology has equally shocked the internet.

Nobody should ever feel as if they can't talk about their sexuality freely and openly, but sometimes coming out is completely the wrong response to a situation. 58-year-old Kevin Spacey has decided to confess that he's gay in the same breath as apologising for making sexual advances to 'Star Trek: Discovery' star Anthony Rapp when the latter was just 14, and many are accusing the older actor of archaically conflating homosexuality with paedophilia.
Jean Paul Getty (Kevin Spacey) may have been the richest man of his time, but in 1973 he proved how he was also one of the most frugal. So much so, in fact, that while most parents and grandparents would give anything in the world to see the safe return of their child or grandchild after a kidnapping, he point blank refused to pay the $17 million that was demanded of him by an organised crime ring who abducted and tortured his 16-year-old grandson, John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer). No matter how much the teen's mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) begged the billionaire to pay the ransom, he wouldn't budge, citing that his willingness to pay up would encourage the kidnapping of his other grandchildren.
Things started to get serious when John Paul's ear arrived in the post with the threat that the boy would be posted to them piece by piece if the ransom was not paid. Gail decided to join forces with one of Jean Paul's closest associates, former CIA operative Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg), who agreed to help her bring her son back home and get his client to change his mind about paying up.
'All the Money in the World' is the true story of an oil tycoon and his unusual reaction to seeing his grandson kidnapped. Kevin Spacey is unrecognisable with his Jean Paul Getty prosthesis. The film has been directed by the Academy Award nominated Ridley Scott ('Alien', 'The Martian', 'Blade Runner') and written by David Scarpa ('The Day the Earth Stood Still', 'The Last Castle') who adapted the screenplay from the book 'Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty' by John Pearson.

Wildly energetic and so cool it hurts, this action movie has been put together in the style of a colourful movie musical, but with the songs playing in the background. Everything is choreographed to the tunes, as the cars veer across the road dodging bullets fired in sync to the rhythm. It's pure candy for the eyes and ears, impeccably staged by writer-director Edgar Wright. And we don't mind much that there's not much more to it than that.
The title refers to Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young man who doesn't talk much. Hiding behind sunglasses and earbuds, he's an expert driver raised by his deaf foster dad (C.J. Jones) after his parents died in, yes, a car crash. He's also in debt to Doc (Kevin Spacey) a criminal mastermind who orchestrates elaborate heists with a variety of low-life goons, all with Baby at the wheel. And things are looking up for Baby when he falls for diner waitress Debora (Lily James) just as he pays off his debt to Doc. But first he has to do one last job, working this time with the loved-up Buddy and Darling (Jon Hamm and Eliza Gonzalez) and the unpredictable, trigger-happy Bats (Jamie Foxx).
Scenes play to the beat of the songs on Baby's iPod, and Wright adds clever touches everywhere. Shooting in long takes with elaborately planned-out mayhem, the film ricochets from one sequence to the next, looking seriously stylish every step of the way. It quickly becomes clear that even the super-efficient Baby is soon going to be in over his head, which helps us root for him as the carnage escalates. The likeable Elgort has a lot of fun with the role, enjoying Baby's wordless swagger while including a touch of emotion here and there. No one else gets a chance to add much depth to his or her role, but at least Foxx gets to steal his scenes simply because no one has a clue what he might do next.

The actress is the female lead alongside Kevin Spacey in the Netflix series
The ongoing row about equal pay in Hollywood has erupted again - this time from the female lead of the incredibly successful Netflix show, House of Cards: Robin Wright. The acclaimed actress - who plays vindictive First Lady Claire Underwood - has revealed she has recently discovered she is not on the same pay as her male co-star, Kevin Spacey.
Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood in House of Cards
Speaking to NET-A-PORTER’s weekly digital magazine, The EDIT, mother-of-two Robin explained she had previously been told both her and Spacey were receiving the same amount of money.
The stage and screen legend will host the 71st Tony Awards on June 11th.
The Tony Awards have announced one of the true legends of stage and screen to host their annual ceremony later this year – none other than Kevin Spacey!
The 57 year old multiple Oscar winner and Emmy nominee might be most famous for his film and TV roles, such as American Beauty and Netflix's 'House of Cards', but theatre-goers will know that he has a long and rich association with the stage too.
Spacey picked up the Best Actor Tony for ‘Lost in Yonkers’ back in 1991, and has previously also served as the Artistic Director of the prestigious Old Vic Theatre Company in London for over a decade, appearing in numerous productions during his tenure there, including a Sam Mendes-directed production of ‘Richard III’ that drew a great deal of acclaim.

Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey star in this comedy thriller.
Filmmaking genius Edgar Wright has returned with another crime comedy epic entitled 'Baby Driver', starring Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey. Based on a previous music project of Wright's, the film is his first US venture and is set to arrive in August.
Ansel Elgort stars in 'Baby Driver'
The film follows a young man named Baby (Elgort) who happens to be an excellent getaway driver. He also has another unusual quirk; when he was a child, he was in a car accident that left him with a permanent ringing in his ears and as such constantly listens to music through his earphones to combat the sensation. It doesn't affect the way he works, however, and he's an indispensable part of Doc's (Spacey) criminal gang.

This movie is based on a real meeting between Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon in the White House in December 1970. The only details about this collision of two icons come from a few eyewitness accounts, as well as the photograph they took together. So the screenwriters have some fun with it, weaving in quite a bit of comedy that encourages actors to chomp merrily on the scenery. It's entertaining to watch, but the script misses the chance to add meaning on the situation.
Elvis (Michael Shannon) is the one who initiates this meeting, concerned about the growing protests on the streets of Washington, DC. So he flies to Los Angeles to collect his long-time friend Jerry (Alex Pettyfer) then heads to the capital to meet with his nutty colleague Sonny (Johnny Knoxville) and pitch himself to President Nixon (Kevin Spacey) as an undercover FBI agent who can infiltrate the nation's youth. Since it's obvious that all Elvis wants is a federal ID badge, Nixon brushes the whole idea of a meeting aside until his advisors (Colin Hanks and Evan Peters) convince him that it would be a great PR move. So just before Christmas, the two men finally meet up, and they discover that they have more in common than either expected.
Because of the absurdity of the set-up and the wackiness of the period styles, the movie feels rather a lot like an extended sketch comedy that's largely improvised by an up-for-it cast. These two men are both such big personalities that a meeting like this would be hard to believe if it weren't for the photographic evidence. The conversation between Presley and Nixon is surreal and hilariously random (and largely fictionalised). Shannon and Spacey are having a great time prowling around each other, pouncing with a punchline at every opportunity, so watching them is riveting. Mercifully, they underplay the impersonations, capturing the men with tiny details of movement and vocal inflection rather than relying on lots of make-up. Although Shannon does have that hair and costume.
Continue reading: Elvis & Nixon Review
It may seem like a bizarre fantasy, but Elvis & Nixon is based on a true event in 1970, when Elvis Presley visited Richard Nixon in the White House.
Inspired by an iconic photograph of Nixon shaking Presley's hand and appointing him as an honorary federal drug-enforcement agent, the screenwriter spun the meeting into a full-on screwball comedy. Kevin Spacey plays Nixon in the film, and notes that "while this was such a famous meeting, it wasn't recorded. So in a way it allowed us, and certainly the screenwriter, to be able to imagine what a lot of this conversation was. First-hand witnesses were helpful in terms of snippets, but I think it was expanded. And that's sort of the fun of it, that we could imagine it."
Michael Shannon plays Presley in the movie, and Spacey says that both actors decided not to do impersonations on-screen. "These are two figures who, obviously, people know," Spacey says. "There's so much public stuff but not that much private stuff, so we tried to find an essence of each of these figures and then allow them to respond to each other genuinely. I think what was most interesting was the fact that these two people you wouldn't think would have anything in common actually, at the end of this meeting, had sort of an appreciation for each other."

Spacey, who plays Frank Underwood in the thrilling Netflix political drama, reckons real American politics is a lot crazier.
Kevin Spacey, the star of the hit political drama ‘House of Cards’, has said that the show “doesn’t go far enough” in reflecting the real nature of American politics and the presidential race for the White House.
The 56 year old plays the scheming, ambitious Frank Underwood in the thrilling show, which released its fourth season to Netflix at the beginning of March. Speaking at a presentation in Paris of the streaming service’s forthcoming shows this week, he reckons that the truth of American politics is scarier than as its portrayed on ‘House of Cards’ – but not by much.

Campbell is rumoured to be portraying one half of a rival power couple to the Underwoods in the Netflix-only series.
‘90s TV and film star Neve Campbell is continuing her career resurgence with the news that she’s to be a regular member of the cast of ‘House of Cards’ when it returns for its fourth season.

Director Stephan Elliott initially thought Guy Pearce was too handsome for a role in 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'.
Of all the possible reasons why an actor might receive a "no" when auditioning for a part in the cut-throat world of movies, being "too handsome" must rank among the best of them. But that's exactly the fate that almost befell Guy Pearce before he won the part of Adam Whitely/Felicia Jollygoodfellow in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Guy Pearce: too pretty for Priscilla
Director Stephan Elliott recently told The Herald Sun that he had reservations about Pearce starring in the 1994 comedy-drama, which follows the adventures of three drag queens, because the young Guy was just so darn good looking:
