Kevin Spacey been cut out of a leading role as USA oil tycoon J. Paul Getty in a film about the 173 kidnapping of the oil tycoon's grandson, weeks before it is due to be released in cinemas. So, basically, this was a good move for everyone, except Kevin Spacey.
All The Money In The World was originally set to premiere at the American Film Institute's film festival on 16 November, but the release was pushed back to 22 December after the allegations against Spacey surfaced.
Scott made the decision himself according to Deadline as he didn't want his movie to be tarnished by Spacey's inclusion given the recent sexual assault allegations that have been levelled at the actor.
Scott is still hoping to release his movie on schedule. Variety adds that reshoots will take place over the next two weeks and Wahlberg and Williams are expected to be involved (let's hope their wigs are better than the one Kate Mara wore in the Fantastic Four reshoots).
Actor Anthony Rapp and Harry Dreyfuss (the son of Richard Dreyfuss) have also said the actor assaulted them, and London police said they were investigating a 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey. All the Money in the World chronicles the true life saga of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and his mother's desperate attempt to convince his insanely wealthy grandfather (Spacey/Plummer) to pay the ransom.
The actor has since been accused by more than dozen men of either sexually harassing or assaulting them.
The House of Cards star has yet to reply to the claim.
The latest accusation against Spacey came Wednesday, when a former television news anchor accused him of sexually molesting her son past year when he was 18.
"But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".
