Hollywood has been blindsided over the last few months by sexual harassment claims of more well known people than ever before. It seems that each passing day brings a new name into the light, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. Out of all the names that have been put out there, I think we can all agree that Kevin Spacey’s is by far the most shocking.
I’m not going to get into the details, but a few weeks ago brought the news that director Ridley Scott made the decision to replace Spacey in his upcoming film All the Money in the World. While it wasn’t shocking to here the move was happening, the shocking part is how quick it had to happen with a December release date looming over the project. Christopher Plummer, who was originally sought out to play J. Paul Getty in the film, was brought on board to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes in just a two week window. The turnover happened pretty quickly as a new trailer for the biopic holds our first look at Plummer in the role previously held by Spacey.
Ridley Scott and company seem to have been working their tails off, but it makes sense. The new trailer will no doubt be the first of many that are aimed at trying to replace those featuring Spacey, as well as make sure the public knows that Spacey isn’t involved with the film anymore. If audiences do continue to see Spacey in the footage, it could be a massive hit to its box-office take, which obviously isn’t what the studio or Scott wants for a film that apparently is very good.
Check out the new trailer below, as well as the new image that was released with it above. Even with the Spacey development, will you be going to see Ridley Scott’s new film? Was Christopher Plummer a good replacement? How does the film look to you? Scott’s All the Money in the World also stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg and is set to be released on December 22nd.
