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.
