Spacey was to play J. Paul Getty in the Oscar-buzzy biopic, but the film removed the beleaguered star days after actor Anthony Rapp claimed Spacey made an unwanted advance toward him when he was just 14 years old.
Many other men have since come forward and shared similar stories about the Oscar victor.
Instead of moving the movie's scheduled rollout on December 22 to reassess the film, Scott instead has chosen to reshoot scenes of J. Paul Getty with Plummer, all with a goal of making the previously-announced release date.
Plummer confirmed that the reshoots will last for 2 weeks, before then admitting, "It is going to be tough, but exciting". "It's worth getting a go". I don't have a day off. "I have known so many Scrooges". "It seems endless. About 9 to 10".
"It isn't replacing. In a amusing way it's starting all over again because it's going to be different, naturally", the 87-year-old told Entertainment Tonight. "Which is remarkable. I don't know Mark or Michelle, and I will meet them on the set".
Spacey was also fired from Netflix's House of Cards following the allegations.
"I don't discuss that". He answered: "I think it's very sad what happened to him. Kevin is such a talented and a terrifically gifted actor, and it's so sad", he said. "And that's all I can say because that's it". "The whole circumstance is sad", he added.
When asked who he would most like to profile, Talese, 85, said: 'I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey. But what can I do?
Plummer, 87, told Confidential on Sunday that he understands the fascination around the abrupt and highly unusual recasting but "I'm used to big roles and lots of words".
This late in the game, the costs involved run to much more than just reshooting Spacey's scenes - Posters with his name have been printed, movie trailers with his scenes are already screening in cinemas.
