Spacey will be replaced by veteran actor Christopher Plummer in the role of the late US oil tycoon, Jean Paul Getty, in the Ridley Scott-directed drama about the 1973 kidnapping of his then teenage grandson, John Paul Getty III, the three publications reported.

While Plummer has valiantly accepted his duty to replace Spacey in the film, the 87-year-old is still reeling from the Tony-winner's fall from grace as accusations continue to pour out.

“It isnt replacing. In a amusing way its starting all over again because its going to be different, naturally, ” he explained.

"The situation is very sad, because he's such a talented guy", Plummer said of Spacey.

When asked whether he felt any extra pressure because of the circumstances that led to his casting, Plummer responded, "No, not at all. But I've got to forget that and go and do it, because it's a very well written script and Ridley has been very good".

Reshoots begin on Monday, with the plan to stick to the original release date for the film of 22 December.
