Kevin Spacey to be removed from 'All the Money in the World' December release
 
Wow.....never heard on such a thing. They released the trailer a month or so ago...

EXLUSIVE: In an unprecedented bold move, director Ridley Scott, along with Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas have decided to remove Kevin Spacey from their finished movie All The Money In The World. Christopher Plummer has been set to replace Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty. Re-shoots of the key scenes are expected to commence immediately. Scott is also determined to to keep the film’s December 22 release date.

In a unified front, the cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, unanimously agreed to re-shoot all of Spacey’s scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams’ cooperation part of the mix. This comes on the heels of the decision to pull the film from the prestige closing night slot of the AFI Festival. That move resulted after a weekend of back and forth, with Scott and Friedkin in particular incensed that the sordid allegations against Spacey might doom a film that Scott dropped everything to direct, and on which so many people worked hard and did not deserve to see the results hobbled in the marketplace because of the taint of scandal. So they took control of the narrative. Scott is a maverick, and didn’t shrink under the pressure to re-stage the key scenes involving J Paul Getty, the oilman who refused to pay a ransom after his grandson, John Paul Getty III was kidnapped.


Spacey worked about eight to ten days on the film, but the character is an important presence even if much of the action in the thriller involves the frantic efforts of the kidnapped heir’s mother Gail Harris (Williams), and Getty’s advisor (Wahlberg) to free the youth. The nightmare escalated after the family received his severed ear as proof the kidnappers were going to kill him if the money wasn’t delivered.

Though far more dramatic, considering how quickly the release date is approaching, with the need to not only reshoot but also to redo the marketing materials, this becomes the second instance where filmmakers refused to allow their picture to be doomed by scandal. The other example came when writer/director Taylor Sheridan, stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen and producers Basil Iwanyk and Matthew George wrested back control of the critically acclaimed Wind River from The Weinstein Company after dozens of women claimed that ousted TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein molested them.

Given the state of the current environment and news, it’s inspiring to see filmmakers fight for what is morally right, and the producers’ support of Scott gives the movie a chance for a fair shake in the marketplace and potentially in awards season, which would not have happened had Spacey’s scenes been left intact after the troubling allegations leveled against the actor.

David Scarpa adapted the John Pearson book. Imperative Entertainment financed the film, and Friedkin and Thomas produced along with Scott Free’s Scott and Kevin J. Walsh, Quentin Curtis and Chris Clark.

Scott once before was forced to deal with re-shooting on a film, following the death of Oliver Reed in the Oscar winning Gladiator. Those circumstances were dramatically different than the decision that was made today on All The Money In The World.

At least people won't be chuckling at the horrible makeup they used on him.

What in the actual **** was the point in casting an actor in his 50s to play a guy in his 80s?

Have we run out of old actors these days? What, we can't trot Dustin Hoffman out there or something? Donald Sutherland? Robert Duvall?

Nah, let's age a guy up 25 years; that's a way better idea.

Hollywood is just full of goddamn retards.

Oh for ****'s sake...

God I wish this would've all gone down about 18 months ago. Election season would've been FAR more tolerable.

Jeremy Piven is getting blasted by a gal that said he "touched her boob" on the set of Entourage and she didn't give him permission. Isn't that just what striking out is? ****ing kids is one thing, but fondling a boob without permission, at least in the setting she described in his trailer sounds like Piven was making a move and struck out.

It's Ridley Scott, man.

The Martian withstanding, he hasn't helmed a good movie since Kingdom of Heaven back in 2005.

Good ****ing grief, that's your move when approaching an attractive girl? Grab her tits?

And by the way, Piven's always been a dick towards women. He hit on my neighbor's wife a few years back and she told him to **** off, right to his face, in front of a large crowd at a party.

He really thinks he's Ari Gold.

OK, not being a douche here, but is Kingdom of Heaven widely regarded as a good movie? I left thinking the technical stuff was good. Probably excellent, but the creative was bad.

Maybe I'm off base.

I mean it depends on the circumstance, if they are kind of up on each other and then he goes for the tit grab, and she slaps him what can you do? If he's just sitting there sipping a coffee and goes up to her out of the blue honking one then that is different.

Are men supposed to be like, dear madam, please advise when I can place my hand upon thine bosom? Please sign this waiver first before I attempt to go to second base.

That's ****ed up. I've never, ever approached a woman, in any environment, and placed my hand(s) on her breast to introduce myself.

Holy ****ing shit.

When did I say people do that when they introduce myself? Good lord. Learn to read. I'm saying if he was trying to get to second base, they are up on each other and he goes for it, it's just striking out. I distinctly said if he did it otherwise, that is not the same. JFC

Critics liked it. It didn't do well in the US but it made $211 million on a $130 million dollar budget.

But compare that film to Alien Covenant or Prometheus or Robin Hood or The Counselor any of his other turds between Gladiator and Black Hawk Down and The Martian, and it's pretty good.

Exodus: Gods and Kings was hilariously awful.

Okay, so you're speculating that Piven "went for a breast" because it was there and it's his "right" to find out if she's into him?

You are the dumbest mother****er in this forum, bar none.

How you have a college degree is way beyond me.
