Damn. Hollywood is not playing around no more. Kevin Spacey, who has seen his career crumble following sexual assault allegations by several men, will now be completely removed from his next film.
That’s to be expected, right? Of course they would remove him, but here is the twist…the movie has already been filmed! Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World, is scheduled to be released December 22, and now the crew is rushing to remove Spacey.
According to a report from Deadline, Christopher Plummer has been hired to replace Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty. Re-shoots of the important scenes will take place immediately.
“In a unified front, the cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, unanimously agreed to re-shoot all of Spacey’s scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams’ cooperation part of the mix.”
Reports say Spacey worked on the movie for a total of 8-10 days, but his character has some extremely important scenes, so the re-shoots are necessary.
What’s interesting is that Mark Wahlberg is the star of this movie. For those who don’t know, he has done some pretty f**ked up sh*t in his past as well. He beat two Vietnamese men in the head while attempting to rob a convenience store back in 1988. Two years before that, he and a group of his friends threw rocks and shouted racial slurs at a group of black 4th grade students.
“Wahlberg and two friends received civil rights injunction and were told they would be sent to jail if they committed another hate crime, which is what happened after the 1988 attempted robbery.”
Hm. Strange how we forgive some people, but not others…huh?
