Ridley Scott Is Replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in a Movie That Opens in Six Weeks
In a truly unprecedented move, Ridley Scott has decided to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in the forthcoming film All the Money in the World. The movie was already completed, and slated for a December 22 release date that Scott plans to keep.

The move, which is undoubtedly happening in the wake of Spacey's numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations, is a remarkable one. After all, as Deadline points out, it requires the cooperation of Scott, Sony Pictures, the entire cast and crew of the film, and Spacey's former co-stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.

Spacey can be seen above in All the Money in the World. He spent 10 days shooting the film, where he played J Paul Getty — the oilman who refused to pay a ransom when his son was kidnapped.

All of Spacey's scenes will be reshot with Plummer, and Scott intends to be done by December 22. In other words, this movie just got a hell of a lot more interesting.

Watch the trailer for All the Money in the World below — and expect it to be the last time you see Spacey in the role.
