Transcript: Firing Kevin Spacey Could Cost Millions for Studios

In response to the  mounting accusations  against Kevin Spacey, the actor has been kicked off two major, and expensive, productions: " House of Cards " and " All the Money in the World ." The latter project is reshooting all of Spacey's scenes, a move many have called  unprecedented .

It's also likely to be very expensive.

Spacey was reportedly on screen for around  10 minutes , which may add up to just a couple weeks of reshoots.  Forbes guessed  that could cost between $5 million and $7 million.

Critics speculate the decision to replace Spacey could draw in curious moviegoers, or at least  save the film  from Spacey's controversy.  After the media scrutinized  rape allegations  against writer, director and actor Nate Parker, his film "The Birth of a Nation" flopped.

And that's bad news for many members of the  cast and crew  — some of which depend on the production for work.

A source told  The Baltimore Sun  the crew is still getting paid through the suspension, but we don't know how much they're being paid or for how long.

Beyond the production team, the show's suspension is also reportedly affecting businesses in Maryland, where the show is filmed.

Season four of the Netflix original hired almost 2,700 people from Maryland for the cast and crew.

It also spent money at almost 2,000 Maryland vendors.

Season five of the show contributed $129 million to the state's economy.
