Kevin Spacey completely cut from his next movie

We are swiftly learning that “isolated incident” is not a part of the narrative of sexual misconduct accusations gripping Hollywood – where there is one allegation, more are likely soon to follow.

This is not lost on Sony Pictures, which on Wednesday – the same day new groping allegations surfaced against – reportedly decided that the Oscar winner will be completely removed from his next film, All the Money in the World, and his scenes re-shot with Christopher Plummer in the not-insignificant role of J Paul Getty.

Director Ridley Scott was aiming to start re-shoots immediately, Deadline first reported, and hopes to still hit his Dec. 22 release date. That would be quite a feat indeed, considering that Spacey plays an important supporting role as the oil tycoon who negotiates with kidnappers demanding a ransom for his grandson.

The film was originally slated to be the closing-night gala at AFI Fest next week, but was pulled from the schedule on Monday. Sony was not able to immediately confirm the new plans.

The news comes just a week after Anthony Rapp and Harry Dreifuss accused Spacey of groping them, just the latest in a landslide of allegations against Hollywood elite that started with Harvey Weinstein.

Earlier Wednesday, former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh came forward to say the House of Cards actor sexually assaulted her teenage son after buying him “drink after drink after drink” at a Nantucket, Mass., nightclub last July.

“To Kevin Spacey, I want to say this – shame on you for what you did to my son,” Unruh said at a morning news conference.

Unruh became emotional as she described how Spacey allegedly stuck his hand down her then 18-year-old son’s pants and grabbed his genitals at the restaurant without warning or consent.

“The victim, my son, was a star-struck, straight, 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator — or that he was about to become his next victim. My son was not of legal age to drink alcohol, and he told Kevin Spacey that he was of legal age. But whether he was of legal age or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to assault him.”

She said her son tried to “shift his body to remove his hand” but the groping continued, and “my son froze.” She added that when Spacey asked him to come to a private after-party and briefly left to go to the bathroom, her son ran.

“It harmed him and it cannot be undone,” she said.

Unruh said her son was too scared and ashamed to file a police report at the time, but did so last week, which triggered a criminal investigation. Her lawyer, , said their civil claim as well as the criminal complaint fall within the statutes of limitations.

Following Rapp’s allegations last week, Spacey tweeted this:

Unruh took serious issue with Spacey’s tacked-on revelation: “Shame on you for using your apology to to come out as a gay man. That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator.”
