The Black List screenplay, written by David Scarpa, centers on the 1973 kidnapping in Italy of J. Paul Getty III - the rebellious teenage grandson of oil billionaire J. Paul Getty, who was reluctant to pay the $17 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
This could be seen as a risky move given the December 22 release date but maybe not as risky as keeping Kevin Spacey employed in the part.
USA actor Kevin Spacey is to be erased from a completed Hollywood film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him.
He's going to be replaced by Christopher Plummer.
According to Deadline, the cast and crew of the film agreed in a "unified front" that they should reshoot all of Spacey's scenes. With her son's life in the balance, Gail and Getty's advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. We'll keep you posted. Director Ridley Scott is rushing to reshoot the new scenes with Plummer in order to make the film's scheduled release date of December 22.
Tweet longer: Twitter officially moves to a 280 character limit

Spacey is now off getting "treatment" probably the same place Weinstein is, probably watching his career go up in flames all around him.
The movie has also been withdrawn from the American Film Institute's (AFI) annual festival in Los Angeles later this month.
The report came just hours after a former TV news anchor alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son past year, at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
Spacey has suffered a rapid fall from grace since actor Anthony Rapp, who starred in the 2005 musical Rent, accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.
Vox has reached out to Spacey's representatives for comment. Over the past two weeks as allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault have mounted, Spacey has been fired from "House of Cards", denied an Emmy award, and dumped by his agent and publicist.
