Why Fans Are Furious About Michelle Williams' Treatment In Her New Movie

But the newspaper reported late Tuesday that it had "since learned Wahlberg's team actually negotiated a hefty fee, with the actor paid $1.5 million for his reshoots".

Produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures, "All the Money in the World" recounts the 1973 kidnapping and ransoming of J. P. Getty III, grandson of J. Paul Getty.

Scott had previously told USA Today that he and the movie's original actors agreed to do the reshoot for nothing. But for a film that is, ultimately, about greed, it's the greed off screen that is now making headlines. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid". According to various reports, the pay between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg was staggeringly different.

So, when news broke that Ridley planned to reshoot Spacey's scenes with Christopher Plummer and still make his end of December premiere date, it seemed noble, but impossible.

"I knew it was going to infect my film, which I was very proud of", Scott told q in December of the process, which cost approxiamtely $10-million US.

On January 9, USA Today reported that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million for the reshoot, which constitutes 15 percent of the reshoot budget.

This claim was later rubbished by the director to told the publication that "everyone did it for nothing", adding, "they all came in for free".

Scott said in subsequent interviews that returning cast appeared in the reshoots for free and only Plummer was paid.

Last year, Forbes Magazine named Wahlberg Hollywood's highest paid actor.

The news comes as a shock, especially in the wake of the Time's Up movement's domination at Sunday night's Golden Globes, which pushed for gender parity in Hollywood, in addition to supporting women against sexual harassment.

Yesterday evening, USA Today broke a story about exactly what that fraction is-1/1,500th-and now people are pissed. And Williams told the newspaper that when Scott's team called to request her time for the reshoot, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

While this is a common occurrence on film sets, the reason for the reshoots on Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World were anything but ordinary. It's just too bad they couldn't have driven that same deal for Williams, who is also represented by WME. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted.
