Do you remember when Kevin Spacey was supposed to star in Ridley Scott’s 2017 film All The Money In the World?
Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer just weeks before its release in December 2017 due to a sex scandal which erupted in October of that year and effectively ended the actor’s career.
The 10 days of hastily arranged reshoots cost around $10 million to complete, upping the film’s budget to $50 million. Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams were called back for the reshoots which hit the headlines when it was revealed that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for the additional scenes while Williams only received $80 in per diems.Wahlberg later announced that he would donate the money to the Time’s Up movement in Williams’ name.
Plummer ultimately delivered a performance which was likely more nuanced than the one Spacey would have delivered, but while the film is interesting, it’s not great.
