"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them". The second source, a Hollywood insider, said that Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar victor in a letter to financiers until his demand for more payment was met.
All the Money in the World is filled with drama-onscreen and off. Production hit a roadblock when sexual misconduct allegations surfaced about Kevin Spacey, who plays a supporting character in the film, prompting reshoots with Christopher Plummer in Spacey's stead.
Scott replaced Spacey with Christopher Plummer and re-shot the scenes just six weeks before the film's release.
Saints' free-agent hit Ted Ginn Jr. shows Panthers 'what they missed'
Few players deserve more credit for the Saints' playoff victory over the Panthers on Sunday than defensive end Cam Jordan. Jordan, Bell, linebacker Jonathan Freeny and defensive tackle David Onyemata each had one.
According to two film interviewed by USA Today, Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract, and refused to approve Plummer's casting in the film until he was paid a salary of over a million.
Although the actor has not commented on the reshoots, before or after this news broke, Williams told USA Today a month ago, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".
And an additional source contradicted other reports that Wahlberg's contract did not include reshoots, while Williams did, and that his reshoots were more extensive. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary", Chastain added.
Wiliams has also been quoted as saying about the re-shoot, "I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", Williams said. "She's a brilliant Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winning actress". According to The Washington Post, Wahlberg, the highest paid actor of the year, "along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain". "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote.
