Ridley Scott's latest film is complete but due to recent allegation of sexual abuse actor Kevin Spacey is being removed from the film. In an unprecedented move a finished film is having a lead actor removed and replaces with a new actor. Christopher Plummer will replace Kevin Spacey in the roll of J. Paul Getty. The film is due in theaters in the US on December 22 so that leaves very little time to re-shoot key scenes. This very drastic and expensive move illustrates how seriously Sony Pictures is taking the allegations against Kevin Spacey. This news comes on the heals of the cancellation of the hit Netflix original series, House Of Cards, that starred Kevin Spacey. It's clear that his career is in serious trouble as he faces major legal issues as additional victims alleging abuse come forward.
This trailer features Kevin Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty.
