Director Ridley Scott said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, why refused to shoot Kevin spacey in his new film.

Spacey was to play a major role in the film «All the money in the world». However, due to a sex scandal, when more than ten actors accused spacey of harassment, Scott refused to continue cooperation with him. In early November, the Director announced that he would re-shoot the scenes with spacey, replacing it with Christopher Plummer.

«I realized that we can not tolerate this behavior and that this situation will affect the fate of the film, said Scott. We can’t let the actions of one person jeopardizing the work of other actors».

The Director noted that he was pleased with the play of spacey: «He is a very talented man and we get along very well,» said Scott. According to him, after the scandal they didn’t even talk to spacey. «If he contacted me and said, «Look, this situation has occurred, I’m sorry», I solved this problem slightly differently — said Scott. — However, I still would have replaced it, saying «Thank you for calling, but I need to move on».
