Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", reveals one person. But many have expressed outrage that the financier and/or studio didn't feel a moral responsibility to pay Williams a proportionate sum.

Scott had previously told USA Today that the actors did the reshoots "for nothing" - meaning union minimums - and that he also did not get paid. The math works out to Williams being paid less than 1 percent of what her male co-star received. She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award.

The Washington Post reported in November the pay disparity for the reshoot and noted that "Wahlberg, along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain". In November, it was announced that Christopher Plummer would replace Kevin Spacey in the film, which required Plummer and the cast and crew to quickly reassemble in London for reshoots, a risky move that ultimately saved a movie that nearly immediately after earned Golden Globe nominations for director Ridley Scott, and actors Christopher Plummer and Michelle Williams. However, the reports suggested that the reshoots cost over $10 million to the makers. So, yes, Wahlberg should be paid more.


Ridley Scott, who directed the movie, and Imperative Entertainment, the company that produced and financed it, were lauded in December for purging the disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the film.

The publication also claims that before any of the reshoots had been scheduled, Wahlberg's eagerness to work with director Ridley Scott had seen him take an 80 per cent pay cut on his usual salary of $US15 million (or more) per movie.

According to USA Today, Wahlberg asked for more money because he wasn't satisfied with the choice of Christopher Plummer as the replacement for Kevin Spacey. Or perhaps it was the decision of a team seizing any convenience as they sought to reshoot a movie on an astonishingly tight schedule. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea.


Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage: He was the only major missing piece and the clock was ticking.

Spokesmen for Imperative, William Morris Endeavor and Sony Pictures, which distributed "All the Money in the World", declined to comment for this article.
