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

It was announced last night that Kevin Spacey has been removed from the upcoming finished film, All The Money In The World.

"We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film "Gore", which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey." the statement concludes. Scott is also determined to to keep the film's December 22 release date.

All The Money In The World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Kevin Spacey) to pay the ransom.

Despite the age difference between the two actors - at 87, Plummer is nearly 30 years Spacey's senior - the recasting will come as a welcome development for director Ridley Scott.

More fallout from the sexual harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, as the Oscar victor is cut from an already shot movie, set to hit theaters within weeks.

Oscar and Emmy award winning actor Christopher Plummer will step in and play an aging J. Paul Getty in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, which has completed filming, will reshoot all Spacey's scenes.

The film was slotted to be shown at AFI Fest in Los Angeles but was pulled Tuesday because of the accusations against Spacey, which continues to mount.

His role in All the Money in the World is to be recast and his scenes reshot.

Former television news anchor Heather Unruh said that her son did not report the crime at the time, largely out of embarrassment and fear, The Independent wrote.

Spacey's career has been battered in recent weeks following Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp's revelation that he was sexually harassed when he was 14.

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

Spacey is now off getting "treatment" probably the same place Weinstein is, probably watching his career go up in flames all around him.
