Kevin Spacey to be edited out of finished movie

Kevin Spacey to be edited out of finished movie

Kevin Spacey been cut out of a leading role as United States 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.

In fact, Christopher Plummer - Scott's original choice for Spacey's role - has been recruited.

This could be seen as a risky move given the December 22 release date but maybe not as risky as keeping Kevin Spacey employed in the part.

Spacey has suffered a rapid fall from grace since actor Anthony Rapp, who starred in the 2005 musical Rent, accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.

Ridley Scott and Sony Pictures have been spending the last week or so juggling what to do with the upcoming J Paul Getty drama, All The Money In The World.

The director also pulled the movie, about the 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, from the closing closing-night screening of the AFI Fest.

Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, who play the boy's distraught parents, will now reshoot portions of their performances opposite Plummer. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son's captors become increasingly volatile and brutal.

Spacey, 58, did not immediately respond to the allegations.

Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

"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".

Some people took to Twitter after the replacement following the onslaught of sexual assault allegations, claiming Spacey's career might be over.

USA network Netflix has axed further production of Mr Spacey's House of Cards drama, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it would no longer give the actor a special Emmy award, and his agent and publicist dropped him as a client.
