Kevin Spacey to be edited out of finished movie

IN WHAT'S being called an "unprecedented move", Kevin Spacey will be replaced in his upcoming movie, which has already been filmed.

Kevin Spacey plays billionaire John Paul Getty in All the Money in the World, which is set to be released in the US on December 22.

But director Ridley Scott has decided to recast Spacey's role and replace him in the film with Christopher Plummer.

Scott made the decision himself according to Deadline as he didn't want his movie to be tarnished by Spacey's inclusion given the recent sexual assault allegations that have been levelled at the actor.

It's been reported that Spacey's co-stars in the film, Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, have agreed to return to work to reshoot scenes featuring Spacey.

The film is based on the true story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III in 1973 and the desperate attempt by his mum to convince his billionaire grandfather to pay the ransom.

Scott is still hoping to release his movie on schedule.

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.

Jon Bernthal told Sirius XM's Jim Norton and Sam Roberts that he was "enormously disappointed" with how Spacey treated others when they were making the movie.

"When I was there, he really rubbed me the wrong way. I thought he was a bit of a bully. I didn't really care for the way he was behaving toward the other people on set."
