Amid multiple allegations of sexual assault, Kevin Spacey has been dropped from All the Money in the World, a Ridley Scott film about John Paul Getty III's kidnapping. Spacey was going to play oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, who famously refused to pay his 16-year-old grandson's ransom. He had already completed filming.

Per Deadline, Christopher Plummer will replace Spacey in the role, and the reshoots are reportedly starting immediately.

It's not surprising that Scott along with Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas have opted to distance themselves from Spacey at this time; however, it is notable that the director is still "determined to keep the film's December 22 release date."

Deadline also reports that "in a unified front, the cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, unanimously agreed to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams’ cooperation part of the mix."

John Paul Getty III went missing in 1973. The film centers around his kidnapping, and his mother's distraught attempts to bring him home.

Watch the original trailer for the film, which does feature Spacey, below. Then, read the true story of the kidnapping, here.
