While former House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey was getting treated at an Arizona facility for "sex addiction", he was dropped from Ridley Scott's finished film All the Money in the World on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported.

According to Deadline, the cast and crew of the film agreed in a "unified front" that they should reshoot all of Spacey's scenes.

"All the Money in the World" relives the events surrounding the kidnapping of John Paul Getty's 16-year old grandson and the boy's mother's effort to convince the billionaire to pay the ransom, which he didn't. This comes following sexual assault and harassment allegations against Spacey.

As a result, they will be replacing Spacey with Academy Award Winner, Christopher Plummer and somehow keep the release date, is still scheduled for December 22.

The latest accusation against Spacey came Wednesday, when a former television news anchor accused him of sexually molesting her son previous year when he was 18. Scott was apparently particularly incensed that a film he and others worked hard to make would be hobbled by Spacey, so he took charge of finding a fix.

Former US TV news anchor Heather Unruh says her son was assaulted by the star after meeting him in a bar a year ago.

United States 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.

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. One challenge for such VFX work is that many of Spacey's scenes were shot in different locations.

Spacey is now off getting "treatment" probably the same place Weinstein is, probably watching his career go up in flames all around him.
