Kevin Spacey dropped from film after fresh sexual allegations

Kevin Spacey dropped from film after fresh sexual allegations

The film is expected to open on December 22.

Christopher Plummer is set to replace Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, with reshoots of key scenes expected to start immediately to keep the film's December 22 U.S. release date. 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. That move resulted after a weekend of back and forth, with Scott and Friedkin in particular incensed that the sordid allegations against Spacey might doom a film that Scott dropped everything to direct, and on which so many people worked hard and did not deserve to see the results hobbled in the marketplace because of the taint of scandal.

Actor Anthony Rapp and Harry Dreyfuss (the son of Richard Dreyfuss) have also said the actor assaulted them, and London police said they were investigating a 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey.

"To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son", Unruh said, flanked by her daughter and lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented hundreds of clergy sexual abuse victims. Variety adds that reshoots will take place over the next two weeks and Wahlberg and Williams are expected to be involved (let's hope their wigs are better than the one Kate Mara wore in the Fantastic Four reshoots). As reports of Spacey's alleged sexual harassment have continued to pile up, we learned earlier this week that Sony was considering pushing All the Money in the World-in which Spacey plays billionaire J. His mother tries to persuade Getty to pay the random for her son after Italian gangsters captured him.

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.

In the latest incident, he has been accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old man in July 2016. Not only was he recast in All the Money in the World, he was also fired from Netflix's House of Cards.
