Director Ridley Scott has completely removed Kevin Spacey from his forthcoming thriller,  All The Money in the World, as allegations continue to surface that Spacey sexually harassed and abused men throughout his long career, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Actor Christopher Plummer will take Spacey’s role as J. Paul Getty in the story, which examines the 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III. THR reports that many of Spacey’s scenes feature only him; Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, who portray J. Paul Getty’s lawyer and daughter respectively, are expected to return to the set for reshoots.

THR reports that the movie is still scheduled for its theatrical release on Dec. 22. Watch the intial trailer for the movie featuring Spacey below.
