Shooting on the film had already been completed when the decision was made to remove Spacey from the finished product, Variety reports.

Kevin Spacey has been replaced in a film six weeks before its release. Scott is also determined to to keep the film's December 22 release date.

That Scott and the All the Money in the World's producers are willing to go to such lengths to essentially erase Spacey's presence from the film speaks to how seriously Hollywood is taking the allegations of sexual assault that have been levied against him - or at least how desperate many people in the entertainment industry are to distance themselves from a man whose behavior was allegedly a longstanding open secret.

The disgraced Oscar-winner's scenes as plutocrat Getty in the movie, titled All The Money In The World, will now be shelved, with Canadian actor Christopher Plummer signed on to play the role in a series of hasty reshoots.

More fallout from the sexual harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, as the Oscar victor is cut from an already shot movie, set to hit theaters within weeks.

Since then several others have come forward accusing him of predatory behaviour, including a woman who said Spacey had sexually assaulted her 18-year-old son last year.

The film retells the kidnapping of Getty's grandson in 1973.

However, Ridley Scott is now set to reshoot Spacey's scenes with another actor instead.

"All the Money In The World" is the latest project to distance itself from Spacey.

Former television news anchor Heather Unruh said that her son did not report the crime at the time, largely out of embarrassment and fear, The Independent wrote.

Spacey has suffered a rapid fall from grace since actor Anthony Rapp, who starred in the 2005 musical Rent, accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.
