Things continue to unravel for actor Kevin Spacey, who has just been fired from Ridley Scott’s new movie All the Money in the World, just six weeks prior to its release.

Spacey, who faces mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault, has been removed from the cast of Scott’s forthcoming drama, two sources close to the film confirmed to CNN. The scenes starring Spacey as J. Paul Getty will be replaced with new footage featuring Christopher Plummer.

The upcoming biopic thriller has less than two months until its scheduled December 22 release, making the move to remove Spacey unprecedented and daring. Scott is determined to keep the film’s December 22 release date, and has already begun re-shooting key scenes.
