Ridley Scott Won’t Let Kevin Spacey Derail ‘All The Money In The World,’ Christopher Plummer Takes Over

‘All The Money In The World’ is a completed film from Ridley Scott that happens to star the now infamous Kevin Spacey. Scott has decided to remove Spacey from the film, recast the role to Christopher Plummer, reshoot all the scenes involving Spacey, and still meet the film’s December 22 release date, according to a report by Deadline.

Spacey played J Paul Getty the billionaire grandfather who refuses to pay the ransom of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, this leads to a frantic thriller as the kidnapped heir’s mother Gail Harris, and Getty’s advisor tries to free the youth.
