Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, who also star in the movie, are expected to be involved with the reshoots. Plummer is slated to replace Spacey as J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott's film "All the Money in the World".
The decision to erase Spacey comes after a string of allegations about the actor's predatory sexual behaviour.
The filmmaker made the decision unilaterally and only notified Sony of his decision late Wednesday afternoon, according to sources familiar with the situation, adding that Plummer was originally the first choice for the role, but top studio executives wanted a bigger name. The reshoots, as you might expect, will begin immediately, since the film's release date is December 22. As reports of Spacey's alleged sexual harassment have continued to pile up, we learned earlier this week that Sony was considering pushing All the Money in the World-in which Spacey plays billionaire J.

Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s.

Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".
