Kevin Spacey’s latest movie, All The Money In The World, has been pulled from the American Film Institute festival.
The movie is about the true-life kidnapping of John Paul Getty’s grandson, and is directed by Ridley Scott. The film also stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.
The decision had been made after consideration the cast and crew of the film who are innocent and did not deserve to be punished.
“All the Money in the World is a superb film and more than worthy of its place of honor in the AFI Fest,” Sony said in a statement first reported by Deadline.
“But given the current allegations surrounding one of its actors and out of respect for those impacted, it would be inappropriate to celebrate at a gala at this difficult time. Accordingly, the film will be withdrawn. However, a film is not the work of one person.
“There are over 800 other actors, writers, artists, craftspeople and crew who worked tirelessly and ethically on this film, some for years, including one of cinema’s master directors. It would be a gross injustice to punish all of them for the wrongdoings of one supporting actor in the film.”
Sony/TriStar will however keep the movie’s December 22 theatrical release date where it is.
