Spacey - who was going to star in the movie as the oil tycoon J. Paul Getty - has been hit by a flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations. In an unprecedented move, Scott and Imperative Entertainment made the decision to erase Spacey from the movie and rush to shoot his scenes over again in time to still make the film's planned late December release date.

Spacey was on set for just eight to 10 days, however, with reshoots reportedly already having commenced with the cooperation of both Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, who also star. He is best known for playing Captain von Trapp in the 1965 film The Sound of Music. Plummer is slated to replace Spacey as J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott's film "All the Money in the World". Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

Plummer will now play United States millionaire J. Paul Getty in the story about the 1973 kidnapping of his teenage grandson John Paul Getty III.

"Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink after drink". His mother tries to persuade Getty to pay the ransom for her son after Italian gangsters capture him.

Ms Unruh told reporters the 58-year-old had bought her son "drink after drink" at a restaurant in MA in July 2016 before allegedly sticking his hand down the 18-year-old's trousers and grabbing his genitals.

Former journalist Heather Unruh gave a press conference accusing the actor of sexually assaulting her teenage son. "It harmed him, and it can not be undone".

"All the Money..." is the latest project to distance itself from Spacey, after streaming giant Netflix suspended the ongoing production of "House of Cards" season six.

Spacey, 58, did not immediately respond to the allegations.

It is the latest accusation made against Spacey, who is being investigated by police in the United Kingdom over an alleged sexual assault in Lambeth in 2008.

"Nothing could have prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man".
