The trailer for Black Hawk Down director Ridley Scott's latest drama, All the Money in the World (below), didn't just push Kevin Spacey as an award-worthy costar -- it set his entire presence up as a reveal. In the film, Spacey plays J. Paul Getty, the billionaire who famously refused to hand over the ransom when his grandson, John Paul Getty III, was kidnapped by the Italian organized crime group Ndrangheta, and pulling off the geriatric oilman required layers of latex and bushy fake hair. The trailer introduces the actor with a deep inhale, as if to say, "prepare for one hell of a transformation." Spacey would be a scene-stealer.
And as of today, he won't appear in the movie at all.
In the wake of a number of accusations against Spacey, alleging sexual misconduct throughout his career, Scott revealed to the press that he will remove and replace his original J. Paul Getty with 87-year-old Oscar-winner Christopher Plummer. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Plummer was actually Scott's first choice for the role.
