Christopher Plummer Comments for First Time on Replacing Kevin Spacey

Christopher Plummer Comments for First Time on Replacing Kevin Spacey

Now, he's attempting what could be his greatest trick yet.

Dropping Kevin Spacey from All the Money in the World, Ridley Scott's movie about the real-life kidnapping of oil family heir John Paul Getty III, and reshooting his scenes will reportedly cost the film's financiers over $10 million.

The release date for the film, in which he plays the late industrialist J. Paul Getty, is still set for December 22.

Christopher Plummer broke his silence on the Kevin Spacey allegations in one of the worst ways possible: expressing sympathy for the man accused of sexual harassment, misconduct, assault and even attempted rape.

While Plummer has valiantly accepted his duty to replace Spacey in the film, the 87-year-old is still reeling from the Tony-winner's fall from grace as accusations continue to pour out.

He told reporters that "I was in contention (for it) a long time ago, so I was familiar with it". "Kevin is such a talented actor, terrifically gifted". I admire Ridley Scott and I'm thrilled to be making a movie for him. "It's so sad, it's such a shame, and that's all I can say".

Plummer confirmed actors Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams will be returning to the production to re-shoot scenes in which their characters appear opposite Getty. "Although the situation is very sad". “But Ive got to forget that and go and do it, because its a very well written script and Ridley has been very good.”. "The script is wonderful".

Pulling the film from the festival, chiefs from the projects distribution company released a statement which read: “All the Money in the World is a superb film and more than worthy of its place of honour in the AFI Fest.

When asked who he would most like to profile, Talese, 85, said: 'I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey. He also used the opportunity to open up about his sexuality, saying "I choose now to live as a gay man".

Kevin Spacey has been re-cast in a movie that's due to come out in just a few weeks.

Spacey's ouster comes amid an increasing number of sexual assault allegations against the actor which have knocked Spacey from a number of projects slated to feature the two-time Academy Award victor.
