When director Ridley Scott decided to remove Kevin Spacey from his film "All the Money in the World" and reshoot it with Christopher Plummer, he did not just pull off an extraordinary feat. Plummer's performance as U.S. oil billionaire J. Paul Getty also subtly changed the tone of the movie about the sensational 1973 kidnapping of Getty's 16-year-old grandson. Scott announced in November that he would reshoot the finished film with Plummer after allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey, saying he feared negative publicity would damage the film's prospects.Plummer, 88, sought to bring humanity to Getty, although he said he "made no pretense at research" for the role ahead of a nine-day reshoot in London and Rome in mid-November.He did not see the original scenes played by Spacey. Scott said the film's reported $40 million budget plus $10 million for reshoots was "a little high".
