The Ridley Scott-directed All the Money in the World is moving to Christmas Day
TheÂ Sony PicturesÂ filmÂ All the Money in the WorldÂ has moved to Christmas Day, according toÂ Deadline. Director Ridley Scott replaced Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, reshooting all his scenes with the full support of the cast after the sexual harassment allegations against Spacey.
The film was originally set to open on December 22, though Christmas Day is the largest opening day in December. According to the site, this was done to create space between this film and the Hugh Jackman filmÂ Greatest Showman which was moved to December 20.
All the Money in the WorldÂ 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 sonâs captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her sonâs life in the balance, Gail and Gettyâs advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
Directed by Ridley Scott (Alien: Covenant,Â The Martian,Â Gladiator) from a script byÂ David Scarpa (The Day the Earth Stood Still,Â The Last Castle),Â the true-life dramaÂ is based on the book by John Pearson.
All the Money in the WorldÂ opens in theaters nationwide from Sonyâs TriStar Pictures and Imperative Entertainment on Friday, December 22.
