Mark Wahlberg held up Christopher Plummer's casting on 'Money'

SAG-AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims

According to a USA Today report on Tuesday, when Ridley Scott made a decision to reshoot scenes in the $40 million thriller in order to cut out Kevin Spacey, who originally played billionaire J. Paul Getty, replacing him with new scenes featuring Christopher Plummer, Wahlberg was paid an additional $1.5 million to return to the set, while Williams received just a per diem allowance of about $1,000 for the extra shooting days.

Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", a source told USA Today.

In August, Forbes magazine named Wahlberg the world's highest paid actor in 2017, earning an estimated US$68 million.

Now celebs are speaking out with outrage after its been revealed that Williams was possibly paid less than one percent of her male co-star's salary for the reshoot. "It's just been such a unusual saga of highs and lows and ups and downs", continued the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film. Scott said publicly that everyone involved in the reshoots did so without additional compensation. The new footage was necessary after Christopher Plummer was brought in to the Ridley Scott-directed movie to replace Kevin Spacey, who was sacked amid allegations of past sexual misconduct.

The news broke in early November that filmmaker Ridley Scott would be recasting and reshooting Spacey's role in All the Money in the World just six weeks before its planned release, as multiple allegations of sexual misconduct mounted against Spacey. Which put director Ridley Scott in the precarious position of bringing on Plummer before Wahlberg's contract was settled, as TMZ reports. It seems there was little-to-no communication about each actor's deal between the agents (apparently this is normal), and if there was, they did a much better job representing Wahlberg, their male star, over Williams.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of the production team at the time.

It's also unclear whether or not Williams knew that Wahlberg hadn't yet committed to the reshoots when she agreed to participate. Imperative Entertainment didn't have any more money.

Wahlberg was already not thrilled to have worked for roughly 80 per cent less than his standard fee, the sources said, especially when overseas distributors were using his box-office track record to promote the film. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.
