'All the Money in the World': Ridley Scott and cast on replacing Kevin Spacey, reshooting with Christopher Plummer

The sexual-misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey rocked Hollywood in late October and thrust Ridley Scott into immediate action, given that his upcoming awards-season hopeful All the Money in the World co-starred the Oscar-winning actor — in old-age makeup — as billionaire J. Paul Getty. Despite the fact that the film, focusing on the kidnapping of Getty’s grandson in 1971, was set to open less than two months later, Scott (and Sony Pictures) decided to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes with Christopher Plummer as Getty — a stunning turn of events that, star Mark Wahlberg tells us, was akin to a “whirlwind.”
