  • Shocker: Kevin Spacey Dropped From 'All The Money In The World;' J Paul Getty Role Recast With Christopher Plummer

In a unified front, the cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, unanimously agreed to re-shoot all of Spacey's scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams' cooperation part of the mix. Scott's drastic choice to cut Spacey from the movie will put it at risk of missing its December 22 release date, thus jeopardizing its Oscar eligibility.

But rather than push the film to 2018, Deadline reports that Sony is cutting Spacey out of the movie, reshooting his scenes with Oscar victor Christopher Plummer, and keeping the film's December release date.

It follows nine other allegations, ranging from inappropriate sexual conduct to assault and groping. Those circumstances were dramatically different than the decision that was made today on All The Money In The World. As of now, the release date remains unchanged despite the reshoots, but insiders say that if anyone can pull off reshoots and still make the holiday release date, it's Scott.

The allegations have led to his firing from the hit television series House of Cards by the streaming service Netflix, which has also refused to release a film in which Spacey stars as the late American writer and critic Gore Vidal. The film tells the story of J. Paul Getty's ordeal following his son's kidnapping. His mother tries to persuade Getty to pay the random for her son after Italian gangsters captured him.

The claims against Spacey span from the mid-1980s to a year ago.

But Spacey only worked on the film for about 10 days and many of his scenes are alone, so producers believe they can complete the task in time, Variety reported.

He apologized on October 30 to actor Anthony Rapp, the first person to accuse Spacey of sexual assault.

The actor has since been accused by more than dozen men of either sexually harassing or assaulting them.

The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son previous year, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
