Inspired by true events, with some scenes, characters and dialogue fictionalised for dramatic purposes comes upcoming January movie release, All The Money In The World. Plagued with controversy thanks to the allegations surrounding Kevin Spacey, and having to reshoot scenes with Christopher Plummer who replaces the shamed actor in the role, the film now looks to be back on the right track, with a new trailer and set of posters released. You can see them below:
Directed by Ridley Scott, All The Money In The World follows the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer), along with the desperation of his mother Gail (Michelle Williams) in convincing the 16-year-old’s billionaire grandfather (Plummer) to pay the ransom asked.
A refusal leads to confrontation within the family ranks, but Gail becomes more and more reliant on convincing her father that her son’s life is worth more than his fortune. Becoming unlikely allies with Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg), the truth behind the lasting value of love versus money is revealed, in a flick that’s set to push everybody involved, both on screen and in front of it, to their limits.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly this past week, filmmaker Ridley Scott broke his silence on having to replace Spacey in the movie, talking about the moment he found out the actor had been accused of sexual harassment and assault.
“I was finished with the film and was in Abbey Road finalising the music,” he explained. “Someone was like: ‘Guess what?’ And that’s where it began.
“I sat and thought about it and realised, we cannot. You can’t tolerate any kind of behaviour like that. And it will affect the film. We cannot let one person’s action affect the good work of all these other people. It’s that simple.”
He added that he hadn’t spoken to Spacey since the allegations, but that if the actor had called to apologise, he still would have been fired from the picture. It’s going to be very interesting to now see how this film fares in the box office, with Plummer front and centre…
All The Money In The World is set to hit cinemas across the UK on January 5, 2018.
