    All the Money in the World
    is an upcoming American biographical crime drama film directed by Ridley Scott and written by David Scarpa, based on John Pearson's book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty.

    It stars Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Christopher Plummer, Romain Duris, Andrew Buchan, and Timothy Hutton.

    The film tells the story of J. Paul Getty's refusal to cooperate with the extortion demands of a group of kidnappers, from the organized crime group 'Ndrangheta, who abducted and subsequently mutilated his grandson John Paul Getty III in the 1970s.

    Kevin Spacey originally portrayed Getty Sr.

    However, after multiple sexual assault allegations were leveled against him, Scott made the decision five weeks before the film's scheduled release to cut Spacey's scenes and reshoot them with Christopher Plummer.

    It is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 22, 2017, by TriStar Pictures.

    Recasting of Kevin Spacey

    Beginning in October 2017, numerous sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations were made against Spacey, who had been cast as J. Paul Getty.

    The allegations resulted in the film’s premiere at the AFI Fest on November 16, 2017, being cancelled, as well as the project's Academy Awards campaign, centering around Spacey’s supporting role, to be reworked.

    On November 8, it was announced that two weeks and $10 million worth of reshoots, which begin November 20, had been commissioned to replace Spacey with Christopher Plummer in the role of J. Paul Getty.

    The decision reportedly cost millions of dollars in rush fees, among other things, in order to meet the film's predetermined December 22 release.

    Plummer Talks Replacing Spacey In “Money”


    plummer-talks-replacing-spacey-in-money-696x464.jpg


    Following news of his casting last week, Christopher Plummer has now spoken about his work replacing Kevin Spacey in the role of oil magnate J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott’s upcoming drama “All the Money in the World”.

    Scott announced last week they would re-shoot scenes where Spacey, currently under fire for numerous sexual misconduct allegations, played Getty thanks to heavy make-up. Plummer is taking on the role for around 8-10 days worth of reshoots about to take place. Talking to Vanity Fair, Plummer says:

    “I think it’s very sad what happened to him. Kevin is such a talented and a terrifically gifted actor, and it’s so sad. It’s such a shame. That’s all I can say because that’s it.”

    Plummer added that Scott called him last week to offer him the part.

    “It’s really not replacing [Spacey]. It’s starting all over again. Although the situation is very sad. I’m very saddened by what happened to Kevin, but what can I do? I’ve got a role. I admire Ridley Scott and I’m thrilled to be making a movie for him. And so I thought, that was it. Ages ago I was in contention for [the role], way back. So I was familiar with it, and then Ridley came to me, and I agreed.”

    Mark Wahlberg, who plays J. Paul Getty’s lawyer, and Michelle Williams, the mother of kidnapped John Paul Getty III, also star and Plummer confirms the pair will be involved with the reshoots: “They stayed and agreed to do it all over again. It’s remarkable. All of this is remarkable.”

    The reshot footage will be re-edited into the film in time for its December 22nd release.

    Wahlberg In “All the Money” Salary Controversy


    wahlberg-in-all-the-money-salary-controversy-696x464.jpg


    In the past half-day, one story has taken on something of a life of its own – and it is all down to a difference in pay.

    The rushed last-minute reshoots in late November on Ridley Scott’s Getty kidnapping drama “All the Money in the World” involved not only the hiring of Christopher Plummer to replace Kevin Spacey, but the bringing back of various crew and cast members including Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.

    That resulted in a cost of $10 million, though during the film’s publicity rounds Scott told USA Today that the undertaking was aided by the fact that the actors involved returned to do their scenes for very little. Scott said:

    “The whole reshoot was – in normal terms was expensive but not as expensive as you think. Because of all of them, everyone did it for nothing… I wouldn’t get paid, I refused to get paid. [The actors] all came in free. Christopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no. I wouldn’t do that.”

    Late yesterday however, USA Today broke the story that Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in the film according to three sources. At the same time, it has been revealed Michelle Williams wasn’t told about this, despite both actors being represented by the same agency William Morris Endeavor, and she was paid an $80 per diem totalling less than $1,000.

    That works out to Williams being paid less than 1% of her male co-star, even as she has higher billing than him on the film. Williams previously spoke with the paper about her reaction when Scott’s team called to request her time for the reshoot: “I said I’d be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort.”

    It has also been revealed The Washington Post had elements of this story back in November and indicated that Wahlberg apparently insisted on and received a much higher sum thanks in part to his team led by manager Stephen Levinson who drives a tough bargain. It’s working out for Wahlberg’s bottom line though, with him being labelled the highest-paid actor of the year back in August.

    The pay disparity report arrives as the entertainment industry continues to be rocked by not just sexual misconduct allegations but the exposure of the gender inequality rampant throughout the industry – especially in regards to the differing salaries of male and female actors.

    Ridley Scott Feels ‘Betrayed’ By Wahlberg?


    ridley-scott-feels-betrayed-by-wahlberg-696x464.jpg


    The minor controversy surrounding the difference in pay between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg on reshoots for Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” is continuing today with more details emerging.

    As we know Wahlberg took home a staggering $1.5 million for just over a week of work on the reshoots, while the film’s lead Williams worked for a reported $80 per day. Some have responded that Williams should’ve had better representation, even as it’s known that both she and Wahlberg are represented by the same agency – William Morris Endeavour.

    None of the people involved with the film have gone on the record about it, but TMZreports that Scott allegedly wasn’t told about the salary negotiations with the actors and was left with the impression everyone was working for next-to-nothing. Now that he knows the story he reportedly feels ‘betrayed’ by Wahlberg.

    Wahlberg apparently never works for free and USA Today reports that he and his management had co-star approval in his contract and they refused to approve Christopher Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey until Wahlberg was paid that $1.5M amount by the film’s financiers for the reshoots.

    Scott also addressed what might happen with the scrapped Kevin Spacey footage: “Who knows? The world is a strange place. In ten years time, somebody might want to see it. That would be up to [producer] Dan [Friedkin] to say so. And I think you wait for this to clear, before you even think about that.”

    “All the Money in the World” is now playing in cinemas everywhere.

    The actor Mark Wahlberg has donated $1.5m to the Time's Up legal defence fund.

    The move comes after it emerged that Wahlberg was paid $1.5m to reshoot scenes for the film All The Money in the World.

    His co-star Michelle Williams was paid $80 a day for the extra work.

    Scenes had to be reshot after Kevin Spacey was removed from the completed film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him.

    The Time's Up legal defence fund will offer support to people who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse or assault in the workplace.
