Kevin Spacey's Downward Spiral: Pulled From Upcoming Film

As reports of Spacey's alleged sexual harassment have continued to pile up, we learned earlier this week that Sony was considering pushing All the Money in the World-in which Spacey plays billionaire J.

This could be seen as a risky move given the December 22 release date but maybe not as risky as keeping Kevin Spacey employed in the part.

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

The movie - a thriller about the real life kidnapping of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty's grandson - will replace Spacey's role as with Christopher Plummer. And while Spacey only worked on the film for about two weeks so Plummer's scenes aren't extensive, the team now has a little over a month to shoot and edit this all seamlessly into the finished film, as All the Money in the World is slated for release on December 22nd. Still, co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams will reportedly be involved in the reshoots. We'll keep you posted.

Christopher Plummer will replace Kevin Spacey in the movie.

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.

Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough
Against the Patriots on Sunday, Benjamin pulled off what might just be the worst punt return in National Football League history. The next time the Patriots take the field will be November 12 on Sunday Night Football against the Denver Broncos.

That Scott and the All the Money in the World's producers are willing to go to such lengths to essentially erase Spacey's presence from the film speaks to how seriously Hollywood is taking the allegations of sexual assault that have been levied against him - or at least how desperate many people in the entertainment industry are to distance themselves from a man whose behavior was allegedly a longstanding open secret.

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.

Heather Unruh claimed that her son, who was 18 at the time, was "star struck", during a chance encounter with the actor at the bar in July 2016.

After the allegations were levelled against Kevin Spacey, Netflix also cut ties with the actor.

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

Spacey has said that he does not remember the incident Rapp describes, but apologised in a statement for any "inappropriate drunken behaviour" he might have displayed.
