It is said the best thing that happened to the movie “All the money in the world” was replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.

Perhaps the worst thing is learning Mark Wahlberg was paid 1.5 million dollars to re-shoot scenes with Christopher Plummer while his co-star Michelle Williams was reportedly paid the per diem minumum of $80 per day for a total less than one thousand dollars.

Kevin Spacey was replaced after allegations of sexual abuse in the November.  The scenes were quickly re-shot and edited to make its planned Christmas Release date for Sony Pictures.

Director Ridley Scott told the press “Everybody did it for nothing”

A rep for SAG-AFTRA, which is the union representing both actors, said that the organization is looking at the circumstances of the pay disparity.

“We are unambiguously in favor of pay equity between men and women in this industry and support every action to move in this direction. At the same time, performers at this level negotiate their above-scale rates through their agents,” said a SAG-AFTRA spokesperson.

Scott, Wahlberg and Williams are all repped by WME, which has not commented. Imperative Entertainment, which financed the re-shoots for a reported $10 million, has not commented nor has Sony.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
