LOS ANGELES -  Kevin Spacey who is facing mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault, will no longer appear in Ridley Scott's forthcoming drama, All the Money in the World just weeks before the film's release.

Spacey will be replaced by veteran actor Christopher Plummer who will now portray J Paul Getty in the story about the infamous 1973 kidnapping of his grandson, 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Spacey shot eight days and many of the movie's scenes feature just him. It is not yet clear how Scott will bring about the swap at such short notice. Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, who also star in the film, are expected to take part in the reshooting.

The movie has also been withdrawn from the American Film Institute's (AFI) annual festival in Los Angeles later this month.

Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October.
