ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD trailer – Christopher Plummer replaces Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty

Ridley Scott’s ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD found itself faced with an interesting conundrum once allegations came out against actor Kevin Spacey, who played the pivotal role of J. Paul Getty in the film. For those unfamiliar, Getty was a billionaire who notoriously did not want to pay the $17 million ransom asked for his kidnapped grandson, despite being very capable of doing so. In the wake of reports on Spacey taking over the news, it was decided to recast his role with just a month left before the film’s intended release… this sort of thing is quite rare in Hollywood, as it usually costs way to much to even consider. But Sony Pictures decided to make the switch, and the film will now feature veteran actor Christopher Plummer as Getty instead. The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams, and Charlie Plummer (no relation to Christopher) as John Paul Getty III. Check out the new trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
