Christopher Plummer replaces Spacey in Ridley Scott film

Kevin Spacey will be cut from Ridley Scott's new film "All The Money In The World" - which has already been made.

Spacey has suffered a rapid fall from grace since actor Anthony Rapp, who starred in the 2005 musical Rent, accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.

Director Ridley Scott is rushing to reshoot the new scenes with Plummer in order to make the film's scheduled release date of 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.

The announcement came just hours after one of Kevin Spacey's co-stars from Baby Driver revealed that the actor was a "bully" on set.

Vikings place Sam Bradford on IR to make room for Teddy Bridgewater
Keenum, who started the season as Bradford's backup, took over as the starter after Bradford suffered a knee injury in Week 1. Bridgewater, who turns 25 on Friday, has been leading the scout team offense since returning to practice three weeks ago.

According to reports, Christopher Plummer was originally the first choice for Spacey's role, playing John Paul Getty, but studio executives wanted a bigger name.

His role in All the Money in the World is to be recast and his scenes reshot. It is now set for release on 22 December.

The film was slotted to be shown at AFI Fest in Los Angeles but was pulled Tuesday because of the accusations against Spacey, which continues to mount.

Emerging nations urge rich to kick-start climate pact before 2020
The Trump administration will not be able to formally extricate the USA from the climate agreement until 2020. On Oct. 23, Nicaragua announced it would join the Paris accord, despite its previous reservations.

The decision follows more sexual misconduct allegations against the Oscar-winner from a woman who says he touched her 18-year-old son in MA last year.

A lawyer for Spacey did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Wednesday. The allegations have led to his firing from the hit television series House of Cards by the streaming service Netflix, which has also refused to release a film in which Spacey stars as the late American writer and critic Gore Vidal.

Spacey, who was 26 at the time, said: "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago".
