I find this fascinating:

Shocker: Kevin Spacey Dropped From ‘All The Money In The World;’ J Paul Getty Role Recast With Christopher Plummer

Ridley Scott's new movie, "All the Money in the World" stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams and features featured Kevin Spacey in a supporting role.

The film was already finished and ready for its release on 12/22/17.

Producers (wisely) did not want the current controversies surrounding Kevin Spacey to drag down their film, so they will completely reshoot his scenes with Christopher Plummer ASAP.

The film is still scheduled to open 12/22/17.

Here is the trailer (based on Spacey's awful old age makeup, Christopher Plummer is a better choice):

I honestly had no idea Ridley Scott had another movie coming out this year. Alien: Covenant just came out in May.

He's 79. I'm impressed that he's still able to push out two high profile movies in a year. If I live to 79, I want to be laying on a beach somewhere sipping a Margarita.

Post Production rescue of the major investment. Seems strange not to simply release it, but investors must have been nervous.
