"When Ridley and I made the decision to recast with Christopher Plummer, our entire cast and crew could not have been more supportive and we can't thank them enough for their unfailing commitment throughout this entire process. This was not merely a reaction to Spacey's alleged behaviour, it also was out of respect for the dedicated cast and crewmembers who had devoted their time and expertise to crafting the film." said Dan Friedkin.

"You can sit there and let something kill you, or you can take action," Mr. Scott said, "I took action." On replacing Spacey, Mr. Plummer said, "At my age, which is enormous, you get worried that your memory won't hold up. But this was too damn good to pass up."
