Kevin Spacey removed from Ridley Scott's film

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Kevin Spacey, who is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, has been dropped from an already finished Ridley Scotts film "All the Money in the World".

The film is scheduled for a December 22 release, and according to sources, Scott is determined to keep that date despite the need for major re-shoots with Spacey's replacement -- actor Christopher Plummer, reports tmz.com.

The re-shoots of key scenes are expected to begin immediately and the film's leads, Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, are fully on board with the move.

Spacey was billed as one of the movie's main stars and is an important piece of the plot. According to sources, he worked on it for eight to 10 days.

Meanwhile, Spacey has checked into a rehab centre in the Arizona desert to receive treatment for sex addiction.

Spacey was earlier removed from popular show "House of Cards".
