Kevin Spacey cut from completed Ridley Scott movie, replaced by Christopher Plummer

Director Ridley Scott is re-shooting scenes for his new movie All the Money in the World, replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.

Filming was completed and the movie was set to premiere next week at AFI Fest, but after allegations of sexual assault were made against Spacey, the movie was pulled from the festival and Scott decided to cut Spacey from the film, the Los Angeles Times reports. Scott is trying to shoot Plummer's scenes and edit what has already been filmed in order to make the original release date of Dec. 22. Spacey played tycoon J. Paul Getty, alongside Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.
