Christopher Plummer Talks Reshooting Kevin Spacey Scenes for 'All the Money in the World'
"Those poor two guys have to do it all over again," Plummer said of the film's Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams.
Christopher Plummer is ready to reshoot Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World.
He is replacing Kevin Spacey, following allegations of sexual harassment and assault allegations against the actor. Plummer will now play J. Paul Getty in the thriller about the infamous 1973 kidnapping of Getty's grandson, 16-year-old John Paul Getty III. The movie, which was already finished, was set to premiere at AFI Fest and is still scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 22 via Sony's TriStar.
Spacey shot a total of eight days and many of his scenes featured just him. Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams also star in the feature as J. Paul Getty's lawyer and daughter, and the two are also returning for reshoots with Plummer.
"They’re going to reshoot the whole ... that section of the movie," Plummer said Thursday on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today while promoting his latest movie, The Man Who Invented Christmas. "Michelle Williams is going to, and so is Mark Wahlberg. We’re going to redo the whole thing, those poor two guys have to do it all over again."
When asked about whether or not it was the right call to remove Spacey from the project, Plummer responded, "As far as Kevin is concerned, I’m so sorry, because it is sad. It really is, because he’s such a gifted, terrific talent."
