Kevin Spacey axed in latest film as allegations continue

Corey Feldman attends the world Premiere of

Kevin Spacey been cut out of a leading role as U.S. 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.

The mounting allegations of sexual assault involving Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey are taking a mounting toll on his career.

Shooting on the film had already been completed when the decision was made to remove Spacey from the finished product, Variety reports. That move resulted after a weekend of back and forth, with Scott and Friedkin in particular incensed that the sordid allegations against Spacey might doom a film that Scott dropped everything to direct, and on which so many people worked hard and did not deserve to see the results hobbled in the marketplace because of the taint of scandal.

That date may still change, but Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are returning to reshoot the scenes, and the race is on to hit the now extremely tight deadline.

All the Money in the World, directed by Ridley Scott, is about the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty's teenage grandson. Plummer, 87, was reportedly Scott's first choice to play the role of the cold billionaire, but Scott was forced to pick a "bigger name" for the role, the AP reported.




Christopher Plummer will take over Spacey's role in the film, which despite the last-minute change, is still set for release on December 22, reports CNN.

Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s.

Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". Over the past two weeks as allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault have mounted, Spacey has been fired from "House of Cards", denied an Emmy award, and dumped by his agent and publicist.

Since then several others have come forward accusing him of predatory behaviour, including a woman who said Spacey had sexually assaulted her 18-year-old son last year.
