The fallout continues from the disturbing Kevin Spacey developments. The once revered actor has already been removed from his hit show, House of Cards. Now, it seems his upcoming performance in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, which had been campaigned heavily as an Oscar hopeful, has been appropriately torpedoed.
Sony had pulled the Oscar campaign for Spacey, who plays J. Paul Getty under a mountain of makeup, and they are considering canceling the AFI Fest premiere and pushing the release date from December 22 to June, 2018. Either way, Ridley Scott’s big biopic shot at Oscar gold has probably forever lost any chances it may have had.
The allegations against Kevin Spacey are still accumulating as victims are speaking out left and right. It’s getting worse before it can ever get better, and the accusations Spacey faces are horrific. Way down the list of grievances lie the movies he has in the can or television shows he’s been apart of, or theater production where he was the star. These things involve hundreds of people putting in hard work, taking pride in their product, and it’s now being ripped away from them. Again, not the biggest issue here by a mile, just another shitty thing pinned to Kevin Spacey’s expanding ledger of bullshit behavior.
Personally, I’d like to hear what Ridley Scott has to say about this development.
