If there were any doubts that Sir Ridley Scott is a powerful individual in Hollywood, his efforts to replace disgraced actor Kevin Spacey in new film All the Money in the World, just six weeks out from its release date, proves it. Apparently it was a "simple" decision for Scott in the wake of Spacey's sexual harassment allegations. "But you can't condone that kind of behavior in any shape or form", the Alien director said. In addition to being cut out of Scott's film, Spacey was also fired from House of Cards and Netflix cancelled the release of a Gore Vidal biopic the American Beauty actor was producing and starring in.
Scott found even more time to speak with Entertainment Weekly about the reshoots, which is seemingly about to complete with Plummer and the rest of the cast.
"I move like lightning", Scott said. "Yes", Scott said. "I'd have still done it". Despite principal photography for the film having concluded in August, scenes featuring Spacey were reshot at short notice, in order for it to be completed in time for its scheduled U.S. release date of 22 December. Finally, Ridley Scott is in the running for the inaugural Vanyaland Cinematic Badass of the Year award, and it's with a great deal of pleasure that we announce that it totally makes up for Alien: Covenant, though we realize how firmly in the minority we are on that one. "We'll smooth out any wrinkles, and bingo, we're there". "And it will affect the film".
'We can not let one person's action affect the good work of all these other people.
"I'd have still done it", Scott said. "Sometimes you've got to lay down the law".
Because I know I can deliver.
With a December 22 release date rapidly approaching, Golden Globe attention for "All the Money in the World" - assuming it receives any - could help at the box office. I'm already two scenes ahead. "It's that simple." Reportedly, the film was originally made on a budget of $40 million but the cost of re-shooting with Plummer and editing the film simultaneously took up about $10 million more. You do one for the actor, one for me. "When you storyboard, you've already pre-filmed the movie in your head". After a while you learn to trust and listen to your intuition.
