Kevin Spacey's Role in 'All the Money in the World' Being Recast - Movie Still Scheduled for Dec 22 Release

Posted on Thursday, November 9th, 2017 11:55 AM

Movie PosterKevin Spacey's role as billionaire J. Paul Getty Sr. in All the Money in the World is being recast and the movie is still scheduled for release on December 22nd, 2017. The movie was finished and was due to be shown at the American Film Institute's AFI Fest next week, but several news publications are reporting that reshoots will be done with actor Christopher Plummer, including an article in Vanity Fair:

In the continued fallout from numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations against Kevin Spacey, one giant looming question was his latest film, All the Money in the World, which had been slated for a December release and a splashy awards campaign that was to be centered, in part, on Spacey’s transformation into eccentric billionaire J. Paul Getty. When the film backed out of an intended premiere at the A.F.I. Fest in Los Angeles, it seemed likely the Ridley Scott-directed project would push back its release, or possibly consider trimming Spacey’s role.

What they decided to do was even bolder, and largely unprecedented: Scott will replace Spacey entirely with Christopher Plummer, who will re-shoot all of J. Paul Getty’s scenes. And he still intends to release the film by December 22.

Time will tell if they will be able to pull it off. Movies have dealt with issues relating to actors dying or getting injured on-set, but this is the first I've heard of an actor being completely replaced after production has finished.
