According to the Deadline reports, Kevin Spacey will be ousted from the movie, All the Money in the World. The movie, a Ridley Scott film, has already wrapped up its shoot. In what appears to be movie clips of the film, Kevin Spacey who is playing the role of J. Paul Getty is shown to be replaced by newly shot patch up footage featuring Christopher Plummer.

The move to substitute Spacey with Plummer comes in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations against him. The ones to allege are: Anthony Rapp, Tony Montana, Roberto Cavazos and Richard Dreyfuss’ son Harry Dreyfuss.
On the news of the accusation, Netflix too severed its ties and contracts with Spacey who stars in the popular series, House of Cards.
As if this wasn’t enough, an anonymous street famous artist who goes by the name ‘Akse’ revealed on Facebook that he will replace the mural of Kevin Spacey, created in 2015. The mural is on the side of a building in the northwest England city of Manchester.
Akse took to Facebook to announce about his actions which come “as a result of the recent allegations” of sexual misconduct against the Oscar-winning actor.
Akse and the wall owner made a decision jointly to remove Spacey’s mural of ‘Frank Underwood’, the lead character of ‘House of Cards’.
The building belongs to Nurbhai and Co. Accountants who agreed upon Akse painting the mural in May 2015. The company, on the completion, said, “We love it!” on Facebook.
After the news of sexual misconduct surfaced, owner Hussain Nurbhai was “adamant” on getting the mural removed, according to BBC.
It is still unknown how and when Akse would repaint the mural which was a part of his “Psychopaths” series.
Akse’s series also features Bryan Cranston’s “Breaking Bad” character of Walter White, and Christian Bale’s character of Patrick Bateman from “American Psycho,” in Manchester.
Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? ???? finally completed this portrait of Patrick Bateman from #americanpsycho, i love this movie, took me over 25 hours due to the complexity of the texture of the face, it was hard work but worth it, got some nice props in reference to the movie, couldn't afford the Valentino suit though ???? Christian Bale is such a great actor (check out The Machinist, The Prestige, Harsh Times if you haven't seen them) #akse #p19 #graffiti #art #streetart #fanart #psychopathsproject #psychopaths #patrickbateman #manchester #mcr #ancoats #itshiptobesquare #hueylewisandthenews #paulallen
