Kevin Spacey to be edited out of All The Money In The World film
Kevin Spacey is to be edited out of a completed film just weeks before its scheduled release.
Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World will no longer feature Spacey as oil tycoon John Paul Getty and instead the role is being recast with Christopher Plummer.
The decision to erase Spacey comes after a string of allegations about the actor's predatory sexual behaviour.
The allegations against the actor date back as far as the 1980s.
This latest development comes after Netflix axed Spacey's hit show House Of Cards.
Spacey's career has been battered in recent weeks following Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp's revelation that he was sexually harassed when he was 14.
Spacey, who was 26 at the time, said: "I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago.
"But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years."
Spacey went on to clarify his sexuality, admitting he was now living as a homosexual following years of rumours.
He continued: "As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behaviour."
