Variety

Following numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey, Sony and director Ridley Scott are planning on replacing the Oscar-winning actor, who plays John Paul Getty, in their upcoming release of All the Money in the World with Christopher Plummer.

The film is expected to open on Dec. 22. Sources say they plan to shoot Plummer’s scenes over the next couple of weeks and insert his footage in time to make the release.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams also star in the movie, and are expected to be involved with the reshoots.

The film was recently pulled from the AFI Fest due to the news revolving around Spacey, but the studio was standing by releasing the film on its original date.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
