In a unified front, the cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, unanimously agreed to re-shoot all of Spacey's scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams' cooperation part of the mix.

Christopher Plummer will take over Spacey's role in the film, which despite the last-minute change, is still set for release on December 22, reports CNN.

It follows nine other allegations, ranging from inappropriate sexual conduct to assault and groping.

The filmmaker made the decision unilaterally and only notified Sony of his decision late Wednesday afternoon, according to sources familiar with the situation, adding that Plummer was originally the first choice for the role, but top studio executives wanted a bigger name. So, basically, this was a good move for everyone, except Kevin Spacey. All the Money in the World chronicles the true life saga of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and his mother's desperate attempt to convince his insanely wealthy grandfather (Spacey/Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son's captors become increasingly volatile and brutal.

But Spacey only worked on the film for about 10 days and many of his scenes are alone, so producers believe they can complete the task in time, Variety reported.

The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son previous year, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

Spacey, 58, did not immediately respond to the allegations.

Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s. "I'm beyond horrified to hear his story".

USA network Netflix has axed further production of Mr Spacey's House of Cards drama, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it would no longer give the actor a special Emmy award, and his agent and publicist dropped him as a client.
