Spacey re­placed in up­com­ing film

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

CAL­I­FOR­NIA – Ac­tor Kevin Spacey, who is fac­ing mount­ing al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual ha­rass­ment and as­sault, will no longer ap­pear in Ri­d­ley Scott’s forth­com­ing drama, All The Money In The World, two sources close to the film con­firmed.

The film­mak­ers have taken the rare move of plan­ning to com­pletely edit Spacey out of the film and re­place him with an­other ac­tor.

Christo­pher Plum­mer will take over Spacey’s role in the film, which de­spite the last-minute change, is still set for re­lease on De­cem­ber 22.

The de­ci­sion, a source said, was made by Scott and pro­duc­ers from Im­per­a­tive En­ter­tain­ment, with the full sup­port of Sony Pic­tures.

Im­per­a­tive En­ter­tain­ment and Scott Free Pro­duc­tions pro­duced the film for Sony and its Tris­tar Pic­tures ban­ner.

The film is based on the 1973 ab­duc­tion of John Paul Getty III. Spacey played Getty’s bil­lion­aire grand­fa­ther in the movie, don­ning ex­ten­sive pros­thetic makeup for the role.

Char­lie Plum­mer (no re­la­tion to Christo­pher Plum­mer), Michelle Wil­liams and Mark Wahlberg also star.

The re­cast comes just one day af­ter Sony and Tris­tar de­cided to pull the film from the AFI Fes­ti­val’s pres­ti­gious clos­ing night spot. (CNN)
