Nobody wants anything to do with Kevin Spacey right now. There’s no end to the allegations that he’s an extra-large creep. Netflix is done with him, both with House of Cards and a planned Gore Vidal biopic, as are his agent and publicist.
Kevin was in a movie called All The Money In The World that’s set to come out this December. Ridley Scott directed it and Kevin plays J. Paul Getty. The movie is done and all ready for release, but Ridley and the studio have decided to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer. You know you’re damaged goods when people are willing to pull expensive all-nighters to erase you from a project.
All The Money In The World is about the real-life kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973 and J. Paul Getty’s refusal to pay his grandson’s ransom. Sony originally decided to confront the Kevin Spacey messiness by pulling All The Money In The World from the AFI Fest in November. There was talk of pushing the movie’s release to next year. But Deadline says that Ridley, the cast and crew, and Sony Pictures have all unanimously agreed to re-shoot Kevin’s scenes with Christopher Plummer to make the film’s December 22nd release date.
Re-shoots will begin immediately. Kevin spent 8 to 10 days filming his role in the film, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to re-shoot his scenes. Plus, Christopher Plummer already looks like an old rich dude, which means they can save some time by skipping hair and makeup.
All The Money also stars Michelle Williams (who plays John Paul’s mother Gail) and Mark Wahlberg (who plays a CIA agent).
This no doubt means All The Money In The World will get a new trailer soon. Probably a good idea there. Now that we know what we know about Kevin Spacey’s alleged enthusiasm for picking up youngins, someone at Sony most likely really regrets scoring this trailer with a song featuring the lyrics “What’s your name, who’s your daddy.”
