Watch Christopher Plummer in the new trailer for Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World


Directed by Ridley Scott, the film stars Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Plummer, Romain Duris, Timothy Hutton, Andrew Buchan, and Marco Leonardi.

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

It also starred Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty. However, with all the allegations surrounding the actor, Sony had pulled the movie from AFI Fest. They were still planning to release it on 22nd December. Sony and Scott felt this was only fair to the many hundreds of other people who worked on the film.

So he cut out all of Spacey’s scenes and reshot them with Christopher Plummer in the role of J. Paul Getty.

You can see Plummer in the new trailer below.

Scott spoke to EW about the changes to the film.

I was finished with the film and was in Abbey Road finalizing the music. Someone was like: Guess what? And that’s where it began. I sat and thought about it and realized, 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.

You have to know who you’re going to go for to recast the role and if he’s available. Chris Plummer was always on the list. So you find that out, but quietly, because you don’t want it going around. I flew into New York and met with Plummer and he said yes. So then we had to figure out if everyone else would be available to fit in these new days of shooting. Miraculously, they were. Before you can make the decision you have to make these quick phone calls around — not to the actors directly, but to the agents — saying there’s a possibility I may need some pickups. You don’t say why because of the gossip, but of course it was really for something much more significant.

What’s the betting that Christopher Plummer gets a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination?
