Watch Christopher Plummer play Kevin Spacey’s former role in ‘All the Money’ trailer

The studio removed Spacey from the film following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Sony on Wednesday released a 30-second teaser for its upcoming film All the Money in the World, with actor Christopher Plummer playing the role originally performed by Kevin Spacey. Spacey was cut from the film following allegations of sexual misconduct, some involving teenage boys.

The change from Spacey to Plummer was announced Nov. 8, just a month and a half before the film’s Dec. 22 release date. Remarkably, it seems that the film will hit theaters on time.

Based on the real-life abduction of the grandson of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty (Plummer) in 1973, the film also stars Manchester by the Sea‘s Michelle Williams as the abducted boy’s mother, Gail Getty, and Dorchester native Mark Wahlberg as an ex-CIA agent who helps Gail try to get her son back.

Despite the fact that Getty was once considered the richest man in the world, Getty refused to pay his grandson’s ransom. The trailer includes a pivotal scene that featured Spacey in the film’s first trailer in which Getty addresses a group of reporters.

“How much would you pay to release your grandson?” a reporter asks Getty.

“Nothing,” he replies.
