The recent scandal surrounding Kevin Spacey has seen his acting career spiral downward at a break-neck pace. It has now gotten to the point where we are about witness something rarely seen in Hollywood.
Amid several sexual misconduct accusations, Kevin Spacey has seen his career take a major hit. It started with Netflix halting production of their hit series House of Cards, for which Spacey stars in, to ultimately suspending it indefinitely while the veteran actor remains a part of it. Netflix has even gone as far as not releasing a completed Gore Vidal film he lead. During all this, his publicist and agent also gave Spacey the axe. Understandably, the black-balling hasn't stopped there.
In a report from TheWrap, director Ridley Scott and Imperative Entertainment have made the decision to cut Spacey from All The Money In The World and replacing him with Christopher Plummer. While it isn't rare to see a movie part ways with an actor, it is rare when that movie was already finished.
The Sony Pictures thriller about the kidnapping of, billionaire, J. Paul Getty's grandson was set to be shown at next week's closing gala of AFI Film Festival. However, that will no longer be the case as reshoots are set to start immediately. All The Money In The World has a limited release date of December 22, 2017 that Scott assures he will make. The Oscar push Sony had started for the film was nixed last week.
Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams, and Charlie Plummer are still attached to the film. You can see the trailer below, just try to envision Christopher Plummer instead of Kevin Spacey.
A former representative of Spacey's has stated that the actor is seeking treatment and evaluation.
