Christopher Plummer will take over Spacey's role in the film, which despite the last-minute change, is still set for release on December 22, reports CNN.
Sources close to the production of "All the Money in the World" have said that Plummer began reshoots immediately following the release of new sexual harassment allegations against a teenage boy were directed at the Oscar winning actor, Spacey. And incredibly, Scott intends to reshoot the eight to ten days of work that Spacey did on the project, and still hit the planned December 22nd release date.

The decision to erase Spacey comes after a string of allegations about the actor's predatory sexual behaviour.
The Black List screenplay, written by David Scarpa, centers on the 1973 kidnapping in Italy of J. Paul Getty III - the rebellious teenage grandson of oil billionaire J. Paul Getty, who was reluctant to pay the $17 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers. The news came in an announcement from director Ridley Scott and producers Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas of Imperative Enertainment.
All the Money in the World was already a surprise entry into this year's awards race, as Scott only shot the film earlier this year on the heels of finishing Alien: Covenant.

Spacey went on to clarify his sexuality, admitting he was now living as a homosexual following years of rumours.
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. Not only was he recast in All the Money in the World, he was also fired from Netflix's House of Cards.
The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son past year, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
Spacey's former publicist said last week that the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".
