One of the first allegations made in light of the Weinstein exposé occurred 24 days later, when Star Trek: Discovery, Rent, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and A Beautiful Mind actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of molesting him in 1986; Rapp was just fourteen years old at the time. Within days, over a dozen other men who worked with Spacey on various projects accused him of sexual misconduct as well, ranging from harassment to assault. As a result, on November 8th, 2017, Ridley Scott made the decision to reshoot all of Spacey's scenes with The late Christopher Plummer as a replacement for his role (incidentally, Plummer was Ridley Scott's original choice to play Getty, but production asked for Kevin Spacey because he was more famous and would attract more viewers).
In the final version of the released film, Spacey can still be seen in one wide shot. Additionally, a trailer containing footage of Spacey and a teaser poster featuring him in statue alongside with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams was released in September 2017 one month before Rapp's accusations against Spacey came to light.
It is not known if all of Spacey's scenes will ever be released. Ridley Scott himself said that this will happen "over his dead body".
