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. Cast Michelle Williams as Gail Harris Mark Wahlberg as Fletcher Chase Christopher Plummer 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.
