Christopher Plummer replaces Spacey in Ridley Scott film

Christopher Plummer replaces Spacey in Ridley Scott film

"All the Money in the World" relives the events surrounding the kidnapping of John Paul Getty's 16-year old grandson and the boy's mother's effort to convince the billionaire to pay the ransom, which he didn't.

Given the state of the current environment and news, it's inspiring to see filmmakers fight for what is morally right, and the producers' support of Scott gives the movie a chance for a fair shake in the marketplace and potentially in awards season, which would not have happened had Spacey's scenes been left intact after the troubling allegations leveled against the actor.

Spacey, who was late oil tycoon John Paul Getty in the film, will be replaced by Christopher Plummer.

Kevin Spacey is to be edited out of a completed film just weeks before its scheduled release.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, the two leads in the film, agreed to participate in the reshoots. We'll keep you posted.

Ridley Scott, along with producers Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, made a decision to remove all of Kevin Spacey's scenes from the film fearing that the sex scandal could hurt the film.

In 2016, Avago Technologies bought Broadcom Corp., forming Broadcom Limited , in a cash and stock deal worth about $37 billion. Trump, the announcement underscored the promise of the tax reform bill unveiled earlier in the day by House Republicans.

The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son a year ago, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

In the wake of the allegations, Sony Pictures also pulled the flick from the American Film Institute Fest and said in a statement that despite it being a "superb film", considering the ample allegations around the actor, it would be "inappropriate to celebrate at a gala".

Spacey, who was 26 at the time, said: "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago". The family chose to come forward, she said, after others went public with allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey and other celebrities.

Vox has reached out to Spacey's representatives for comment.

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