Christopher Plummer is set to replace Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, with reshoots of key scenes expected to start immediately to keep the film's December 22 U.S. release date.
The movie - a thriller about the real life kidnapping of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty's grandson - will replace Spacey's role as with Christopher Plummer.
The surprising part of the recast is that Scott wants to keep the December 22 released date.

The government had also said that they were ready to consider the return of the odd-even traffic plan. Junior classes will remain closed for some more days if the air quality doesn't improve, he added.
According to the report, all of Spacey's scenes will be reshot, with co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams expected to participate. This comes following sexual assault and harassment allegations against Spacey. But this film was "in the can " and ready for distribution when Scott made the decision to ax Spacey from the movie. Plummer, 87, was reportedly Scott's first choice to play the role of the cold billionaire, but Scott was forced to pick a "bigger name" for the role, the AP reported.
"To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son", Unruh said, flanked by her daughter and lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented hundreds of clergy sexual abuse victims.
But rather than push the film to 2018, Deadline reports that Sony is cutting Spacey out of the movie, reshooting his scenes with Oscar victor Christopher Plummer, and keeping the film's December release date. The allegations have led to his firing from the hit television series House of Cards by the streaming service Netflix, which has also refused to release a film in which Spacey stars as the late American writer and critic Gore Vidal.
Since then several others have come forward accusing him of predatory behaviour, including a woman who said Spacey had sexually assaulted her 18-year-old son last year.
