Christopher Plummer is set to replace Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, with reshoots of key scenes expected to start immediately to keep the film's December 22 United States release date. His scenes will be reshot immediately, with Christopher Plummer replacing him in the role of J. Paul Getty. And incredibly, Scott intends to reshoot the eight to ten days of work that Spacey did on the project, and still hit the planned December 22nd release date.

The trailer for "All The Money in the World", which tells the story of the kidnapping of Getty's 16-year-old grandson in Italy in 1973, shows Spacey as the fearsome patriarch who infamously refused to pay a ransom to secure the boy's release.

U.S. actor Kevin Spacey is to be erased from a completed Hollywood film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him. And per THR, Plummer was actually Scott's first choice for the role of Getty, but Sony wanted a bigger name in the part. But this film was "in the can " and ready for distribution when Scott made the decision to ax Spacey from the movie. The studio additionally pulled the film from what would have been an Oscar-bait slot at the American Film Institute's November film festival. So, basically, this was a good move for everyone, except Kevin Spacey.

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.
