Sources close to the production of "All the Money in the World" have said that Plummer began reshoots immediately following the release of new sexual harassment allegations against a teenage boy were directed at the Oscar winning actor, Spacey. Scott is also determined to to keep the film's December 22 release date. Cast-members Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are reportedly cooperating with the reshoot, and the cast and crew's decision to redo Spacey's scenes with Plummer was unanimous. Director Ridley Scott is rushing to reshoot the new scenes with Plummer in order to make the film's scheduled release date of December 22.
"All the Money in the World" relives the events surrounding the kidnapping of John Paul Getty's 16-year old grandson and the boy's mother's effort to convince the billionaire to pay the ransom, which he didn't.
The two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey will be replaced by Christopher Plummer in the upcoming movie about oil magnate John Paul Getty.
The latest accusation against Spacey came Wednesday, when a former television news anchor accused him of sexually molesting her son a year ago when he was 18.
It is not clear how Scott will produce the Spacey-Plummer swap, but bringing back the actors for filming and finishing the movie on this razor-tight schedule is an enormous undertaking.
At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Unruh said her son met Spacey at a restaurant and was "star-struck".
Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October.
Vox has reached out to Spacey's representatives for comment.
Since the sexual assault allegations against Spacey, we have also seen the cancellation of his House of Cards series, which was said to be on its way anyway.
