Kevin Spacey removed from Ridley Scott's film

Kevin Spacey cut from 'All the Money in the World,' scenes to be reshot with Christopher Plummer

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

Though there have been other historical instances where an actor has been replaced during a film's production, recasting a role or conducting extensive reshoots after a film has wrapped is rare, and usually only happens to this extent in the case of an unexpected death - for example, Paul Walker's brothers standing in for reshoots of Furious 7 after his death.

According to the report, all of Spacey's scenes will be reshot, with co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams expected to participate.

Plummer "was reportedly Scott's first choice for the role of Getty, but the director was pressured into casting a bigger name", The Guardian reports. He is best known for playing Captain Von Trapp in the 1965 film The Sound of Music. One challenge for such VFX work is that many of Spacey's scenes were shot in different locations.

But rather than push the film to 2018, Deadline reports that Sony is cutting Spacey out of the movie, reshooting his scenes with Oscar victor Christopher Plummer, and keeping the film's December release date.

Apple Responds To Reports About Its Tax Affairs
The company said in a statement: "The debate over Apple's taxes is not about how much we owe but where we owe it". But Apple has come under fire both in the USA and the European Union for its tax practices.

The news follows a wave of sexual assault allegations made against Spacey by over a dozen people, including multiple accusations of assault on underage victims. His mother tries to persuade Getty to pay the random for her son after Italian gangsters captured him.

The decision follows more sexual misconduct allegations against the Oscar-winner from a woman who says he touched her 18-year-old son in MA last year.

Spacey has suffered a rapid fall from grace since actor Anthony Rapp, who starred in the 2005 musical Rent, accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story".

Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".
