Kevin Spacey axed in latest film as allegations continue

Adjust Comment Print

In an unprecedented bold move, director Ridley Scott, along with Imperative Entertainment's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas have chose to remove Kevin Spacey from their finished movie All The Money In The World. 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. His scenes will be reshot immediately, with Christopher Plummer replacing him in the role of J. Paul Getty.

Hollywood director Ridley Scott's madman feats of efficiency have always been legend.

That date may still change, but Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are returning to reshoot the scenes, and the race is on to hit the now extremely tight deadline.

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. The decision was made by director Ridley Scott, along with Imperative Entertainment's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas.

Scott once before was forced to deal with re-shooting on a film, following the death of Oliver Reed in the Oscar winning Gladiator.

Rapper T.I. also took to social media to show his support for Meek , saying he has "real love" for the "All Eyes On You" hitmaker. Tacopina and Brian McMonagle, another one of Meek's attorneys, have said that they plan on appealing the rapper's sentence .

Sony had announced it was pulling All the Money in the World from the upcoming American Film Institute film festival in Los Angeles.

Last week, Netflix confirmed that they will not be producing any new episodes of 'House Of Cards' featuring the actor.

The decision to remove Spacey from the film came a day after Heather Unruh, a former TV news anchor, accused Spacey of assaulted her son on Nantucket in July 2016.

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.

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