Mark Wahlberg allegedly refused casting of Christopher Plummer in 'All The Money'

Mark Wahlberg allegedly refused casting of Christopher Plummer in 'All The Money'

Wahlberg was said not approving Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott's film unless he was paid for over a million dollars for the reshoot. The Post, citing sources close to the negotiations, reported then that Wahlberg was paid at least $2 million for approximately 10 days of work.

Reshooting a movie is not a logistically easy proposition, nor is it necessarily an affordable one.

The new USA Today story also contradicts previous reporting on a situation where the truth is muddy. The disclosure prompted instant outrage. "It's just been such a unusual saga of highs and lows and ups and downs", continued the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film. "She deserves more than 1 per cent of her male co-star's salary".

"This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe", wrote director and producer Judd Apatow. "This is how this business works". Adding to the anger, Scott had previously said that the actors did the reshoots "for nothing" - meaning union minimums - and Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency.

Fresh off the Golden Globes where it was nominated for three top awards, All The Money In The World is making headlines, and not for the first time. As per reports, for the 9-day shoot, the actor was paid Rs 9.5 crore ($1.5 million). Williams' initial contract had reshoots written into them; Wahlberg's did not.

Williams quickly agreed to return. She has been in the industry for 20 years.

Global PS4 sales have hit yet another huge milestone
December 2017 was a great month for sales, in fact, it was the best month of all time for content sales on the PSN Store. That strong finish propelled the PS4's lifetime sales total to a whopping 73.6 million units globally.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". Britto said it was important to acknowledge that it wasn't clear whether Walhberg or his team negotiated the reshoot salary, and said he shouldn't be portrayed as the "poster child" for pay gaps between the genders. If Williams' agents had asked the producers to guarantee equal pay rates for everyone involved, "All The Money In The World" would have avoided a round of bad press, and Scott and his colleagues would have gotten double credit. She did everything she thought she had to do, including giving up Thanksgiving with her family, to make sure that "All The Money In The World" would get into theaters. Wahlberg had more leverage. The film was set to be released on Dec 25. Imperative Entertainment didn't have any more money. Representatives for the film's production company, Imperative Entertainment, also did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Individual client contracts are not always discussed between agents who work at the same agency.

Williams seems to have decided that, of these two ideas, the former was more important. Following the Sony hack during the fourth quarter of 2014, emails revealed that Sony had paid American Hustle female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence considerably less than male stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale.

But the salary discrepancy was a much-talked-about issue after the Globes, thanks to a tweet from Melissa Silverstein, the founder of Women and Hollywood.
