The growing list of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Kevin Spacey (and his poorly received “apology”) have already started bringing down his acting career, with Netflix firing him from House Of Cards’ final season and abandoning plans for his Gore Vidal biopic, and now Sony Pictures has announced that its pulling All The Money In The World—which Spacey stars in—from this month’s AFI Fest. In a statement given to Variety, Sony said that it is a “superb film” and deserves to be honored at the festival, 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.” Unlike the movies coming from the similarly troubled Weinstein Company, All The Money In The World will still meet its scheduled release date on December 22.

The movie, which was directed by Ridley Scott and stars Spacey as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, was actually getting Oscar buzz before the Spacey story broke, but Sony has since pulled its Academy Awards campaign.
