NEW YORK (AP) - Sony Pictures is pulling the film "All the Money in the World" from the AFI Fest following the sexual misconduct allegations made against co-star Kevin Spacey.

In a statement Monday, Sony's TriStar Pictures said it was withdrawing the film because "it would be inappropriate to celebrate a gala at this difficult time." The Ridley Scott-directed film had been slated to be the festival's closing night film on November 16.

TriStar said the film's December 22 release date remains unchanged. The company said "the film is not the work of one person" and that it would be "a gross injustice to punish" the hundreds who worked on the film for what it called "the wrongdoings of one supporting actor."

Netflix on Friday cut ties with Spacey, the star of its "House of Cards."
