Christopher Plummer to replace Kevin Spacey in completed J. Paul Getty biopic

Posted November 10, 2017

All the Money in the World features an ensemble cast including Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.

The surprising part of the recast is that Scott wants to keep the December 22 released date.

It was agreed upon by all parties involved that Spacey's scenes would be re-shot, and Christopher Plummer will take his place in the role of J Paul Getty. In fact, Christopher Plummer - Scott's original choice for Spacey's role - has been recruited.

The film is scheduled for a December 22 release, giving the film's producers less than two months to completely redo all of Spacey's scenes.

Based on a true story, All the Money in the World details the harrowing 1973 kidnapping of J. Paul Getty's 16-year-old grandson, J. Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer, no relation), and Getty's refusal to comply with the kidnappers' demands.

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. His mother tries to persuade Getty to pay the random for her son after Italian gangsters captured him.

The announcement came Wednesday night, just hours after former TV news anchor Heather Unruh accused him of sexually assaulting her 18-year-old son last year.

Spacey, 58, did not immediately respond to the allegations.

United States network Netflix has axed further production of Mr Spacey's House of Cards drama, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it would no longer give the actor a special Emmy award, and his agent and publicist dropped him as a client. Spacey announced he was gay in a statement apologizing to Rapp, while claiming he did not remember the alleged incident. "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".
