Following a slew of sexual harassment claims made against him, Kevin Spacey was fired from upcoming flick All The Money In The World, and now the trailer has dropped with his replacement taking a starring role.

Director Ridley Scott decided to replace the disgraced actor with Christopher Plummer, despite having finished filming and the movie scheduled for a December release date. Watch the trailer for the movie in the clip above.

Based on true events, the film focuses around the abduction of billionaire oil magnate J. Paul Getty's grandson in 1973 and his reluctance to part with his incredible fortune to help rescue him from the mob.

All The Money In The World also stars Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Romain Duris, and Charlie Plummer.

Scott recently spoke for the first time about his decision to replace Spacey, saying it was a "simple" decision to fire the embattled 58-year-old from the film so late in the production process.

"I was finished with the film and was in Abbey Road finalising the music. Someone was like: 'Guess what?' And that’s where it began," the 80-year-old director told Entertainment Weekly.

"I sat and thought about it and realized, we cannot. You can’t tolerate any kind of behaviour like that. And it will affect the film. We cannot let one person’s action affect the good work of all these other people. It’s that simple."

Scott added that while he was happy with Spacey's performance in the original version, had the American Beauty actor called him and apologised, his decision would have still been the same.

“No. And he didn’t call me," he added when asked whether or not Spacey had called him since his firing. "If he had called me and said, 'Hey, look, this is the way it is and I’m really sorry,' then I’d have handled it slightly differently.

"I’d have still done it. I would have said, 'Yes, thank you for calling, but I have to move on.'"
