The Man Who Invented Christmas

All the Money in the World: Christopher Plummer (The Man Who Invented Christmas, above) will portray billionaire J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World. The film has already been completed, but in view of recent, serious allegations of misconduct against Kevin Spacey, the decision was made to re-shoot his scenes, originally shot over a period of eight to ten days, with Plummer stepping in to play his supporting role. Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg also star; the kidnapping thriller is still set for release on December 22. [Deadline]
