Sony Pictures has taken the unprecedented step of cutting Kevin Spacey out of its new movie "All the Money in the World."
The film, directed by Ridley Scott, is to be released as scheduled on December 22nd, yet in the meantime, Sony will reshoot Spacey's scenes with Christopher Plummer instead.
There are cases when a complete editing or replacement is done, like if an actor suddenly dies, but it's unprecedented for a living actor to be replaced when the film is complete, especially only a few weeks before release.
Spacey's co-stars,.. including Michelle Williams, are expected to reshoot some of the scenes.
Accusations have continued to mount since actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey late last month of attempting to seduce him when he was only 14 years old.
The snowballing allegations against Spacey span decades, from the mid-1980s to last year.
Earlier this month, Netflix officially cut ties with Spacey and ended further production of the hit show "House of Cards."
Spacey's apology, in which also came out as gay, only enflamed the situation, and more and more allegations have surfaced since.
In the wake of the scandal, Spacey's publicist and agency say they no longer represent him.
