He took over Spacey's role as J. Paul Getty, the industrialist who was noted as the richest living American in 1966 by the Guinness Book of World Records. And Scott intends to do it in time to make a release date just six weeks away. Interestingly, Plummer was the original choice for the part but studio bigwigs wanted a bigger name.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, the two leads in the film, agreed to participate in the reshoots. Plummer won an Oscar for his work on Beginners.

News that the Canadian Oscar victor is replacing Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott's upcoming film has ignited a flurry of tweets about other controversial figures the 87-year-old star of "The Sound of Music" could be swapped in for.

"To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son", she told reporters yesterday. Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

As reported by Variety, reshoots with Plummer as J. Paul Getty will take eight to 10 days and cost over $10 million, with Imperative Entertainment footing the entire bill. Unruh held a press conference, explaining her son was 18 years old when Spacey allegedly touched his genitals.


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.

A lawyer for Spacey didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

"Nothing could have prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man". "I honestly do not remember the encounter-it would have been over 30 years ago", Spacey said in his statement.

Not only was he recast in All the Money in the World, he was also fired from Netflix's House of Cards.

Meanwhile, more allegations continue to emerge against Spacey, the latest from former U.S. news anchor Heather Unruh, who claims that Spacey plied her 18-year-old son with alcohol at a restaurant in 2016, before grabbing his genitals.
