Watch House of Cards Ending After Kevin Spacey Allegations

A MA woman on Wednesday accused Spacey of sexually assaulting her 18-year-old son on the holiday island of Nantucket last year and said police had opened a criminal investigation.

The two-time Oscar victor Kevin Spacey will be replaced by Christopher Plummer in the upcoming movie about oil magnate John Paul Getty.

I write this all keeping in mind that, in addition to Scott's decision being the right one, it must have been motivated in large part by Spacey's newfound status within Hollywood as a financial liability-the scandal would likely have tanked the movie.

It is still scheduled to be released on December 22., Variety reported.

European Commission raises GDP growth forecasts
Tax cuts, in particular a cut of the standard VAT rate by 1 percentage point have reduced tax revenues. The Commission also raised its growth forecast for next year to 2.1 percent from 1.8 percent.

The film was recently pulled from the AFI Fest due to the news revolving around Spacey, but the studio was standing by releasing the film on its original date.

On Wednesday, a former Boston TV news anchor said that the actor sexually assaulted her son. Spacey allegedly bought her son "drink after drink" and then stuck his hand down the teen's trousers and grabbed his genitals.

Her son did not report the assault at the time, as he was embarrassed and scared, said Unruh.

Spacey went on to clarify his sexuality, admitting he was now living as a homosexual following years of rumours.

Taylor Swift Makes Her Own Cat Memes Counting Down 'Reputation' Release
Swift removed her music from streaming platforms shortly before the release of "1989", decrying the services' royalty payments. According to Hilton, he's a victim of Swift's wrath, which he's never felt before.

More fallout from the sexual harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, as the Oscar victor is cut from an already shot movie, set to hit theaters within weeks.

Though there have been other historical instances where an actor has been replaced during a film's production, recasting a role or conducting extensive reshoots after a film has wrapped is rare, and usually only happens to this extent in the case of an unexpected death - for example, Paul Walker's brothers standing in for reshoots of Furious 7 after his death.

Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October.

"All the Money In The World" is the latest project to distance itself from Spacey.

Cristiano Ronaldo: 'Being a father has changed me completely'
The report that Ronaldo had put his money on the line came from the Onda Cero programme El Transistor during the week. The surprising angle on Ronaldo's goal struggles in La Liga is that he can score in other competitions.

The re-shoots of key scenes are expected to begin immediately and the film's leads, Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, are fully on board with the move.
