Christopher Plummer was called in to replace Kevin Spacey on the upcoming film after allegations of sexual assault were brought into the public light.
Director Ridley Scott made the decision following the revelations, replacing Spacey with 87-year old Christopher Plummer.
The film tells the true story of the kidnapping of oil billionaire John Paul Getty's grandson John Paul Getty III in 1973.
Principal photography on the film had already wrapped, but Spacey's scenes were all re-shot with Plummer to adhere to the film's scheduled release date of December 22 in the US.
