The timeline of ‘All the Money in the World’ and Christopher Plummer is kind of wild how quick thing happened.
Kevin Spacey was originally J. Paul Getty, we had a trailer already and everything, but after his multiple sexual allegations, he was dropped from the project. That was announced on November 8, Christopher Plummer was cast, reshoots would begin November 20, and 9 days and 10 Million dollars later we already have a full trailer.
I would have imagined that Christopher Plummer would barely be in the trailer, and many scenes would look awkward with just him, but that is not the case. He’s pretty prominent in the trailer and the online critics are even a little bit happy with the change, as Christopher Plummer is an actual old man and prosthetics weren’t needed like they were on Spacey’s version. I can’t help to wonder what the original footage would look like and if it will ever see the public eye. Much respect to Ridley Scott and the team for accomplishing this task.
