BEVERLY HILLS, CA (FOX 11) - The film All the Money in the World is a drama, that had its own drama BEHIND the scenes. With approximately 1 month until its initial release, Director Ridley Scott made the decision to replace the role of J. Paul Getty played by Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.
The sexual misconduct allegations were the reason the film was re-cast, re-submitted, and re-marketed.
It was reported that Plummer filmed about 20 scenes in 9 days. Not only did it barely affect the release date (only pushed 3 days) but the film was nominated for 3 Golden Globes...including....Christopher Plummer for the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.
Needless to say, this has been a much anticipated and much talked about film! I sat down with Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, and Ridley Scott yesterday to ask them how they dealt with these sudden changes as they gear up for tonight's big Beverly Hills Premiere.
The film also stars Charlie Plummer (no relation to Christopher) and Mark Wahlberg. It hits theaters nationwide on Christmas Day.
