Kevin Spacey's new movie All the Money in the World, which has already been completed, will cut out the actor and replace him with Christopher Plummer.
Spacey is facing a number of allegations of sexual misconduct, and now the film's director Sir Ridley Scott and Imperative Entertainment have decided to take the unprecedented move, Deadline reports.
Plummer is set to take over the role of J Paul Getty, with re-shoots of all of Spacey's scenes set to begin immediately. Scott is also reportedly aiming to keep the film's original December 22 release.
The actor originally worked for around eight to 10 days on All the Money in the World, playing the oilman who refused to pay a ransom after his grandson was kidnapped.
Sony Pictures gave the go-ahead for the re-shoots, alongside the film's cast and crew and stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.
It will be a massive task, with only six weeks to go until its release, as they will also have to replace Spacey in all the marketing materials too.
The decision comes days after the movie was pulled from the closing night slot of the AFI Festival following the allegations against Spacey.
The actor faced fresh allegations yesterday after journalist Heather Unruh accused him of groping her 18-year-old son last year. Additionally, a London barman has also accused Spacey of sexual misconduct.
Spacey originally faced accusations from Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp that he made advances when the latter was only 14 years old.
Eight current and former workers on House of Cards have also come forward with their own sexual harassment and assault claims, and he has been suspended by Netflix. He is also under investigation in the UK for separate claims.
A spokesperson for the star has said he is currently seeking "evaluation and treatment".
