Armie Hammer has been removed from his schedule after a recent rape allegation from the final remaining film

According to Variety, he will no longer face Mads Mikkelsen in the Cold War drama The Billion Dollar Spy

Police in Los Angeles have stated that the “Social Network” and “Call Me By Your Name” star is a suspect in a sexual assault investigation that opened in February

A 24-year-old woman known only as Effie made the allegation during a press conference earlier this month.She said the alleged rape occurred in 2017

His attorney has described the claim as “outrageous”, saying that all of Hammer’s relationships with the woman were “entirely consensual, discussed and agreed in advance, and mutually involved”

Hammer was slated to star in the film Shotgun Wedding alongside Jennifer Lopez, but retired in January after private messages he allegedly sent about disturbing sexual fantasies were circulated online and he was replaced by Josh Duhamel

And he was also supposed to star in The Offer, a series about the making of the film The Godfather

In The Billion Dollar Spy, he was supposed to play a CIA agent in Moscow in the 1970s and 80s who obtained military secrets from a Soviet engineer.The drama is directed by British filmmaker Amma Asante

Representatives from Asante and the film company Walden Media declined to comment further. The BBC has also contacted Hammer’s representative

His departure means the only films Hammer is putting on the market are those that had filming completed before the allegations surfaced
