Christopher Plummer

Initially, All The Money In The World was shot with Kevin Spacey playing the role of J Paul Getty. But owing to the disgrace over sexual harassment allegations, Scott decided to replace Spacey with Christopher Plummer with only weeks left to the release. Word is Plummer and Scott have done an amazing job in such a short span of time. We have seen the revamped trailer and we were completely bowled over.

Michelle Williams

Essaying the role of Gail Harris, the desperate mother trying to get her son back from the kidnappers, is Michelle Williams. With the Kevin Spacey debacle hogging all the limelight, Williams has been deprived of her much-deserved attention. In the trailer, Williams delivers a powerful performance perfectly portraying the helplessness and terror she feels.

Ridley Scott

Filmmaker Ridley Scott has movies like The Martian, Prometheus and Thelma and Louise to his credit. “The word Getty conjured up a specific memory for me, I of course knew who he was and was familiar with the incident and I wasn’t particularly interested. But within a few lines and after meeting with Dan (Friedkin) and Bradley (Thomas), I knew I was in good hands,” Scott said in a statement.
