In a monumental and expensive move, Ridley Scott has re-cast Kevin Spacey in his Getty thriller All the Money in the World just weeks before the film's release.
Christopher Plummer will now play J. Paul Getty in the story about the infamous 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III.
So it sounds like this is what Ridley Scott wanted anyway. And if Spacey only had 8 days on set, I guess it's feasible.
Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that Scott made the decision unilaterally and only notified Sony of his decision late Wednesday afternoon. Plummer was actually the first choice for the role, but top studio executives wanted a bigger name.
The trailer with Spacey in it is still up: https://youtu.be/6x62O8A8qHw
