Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
This crime thriller dramatizes the real-life 1973 kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer), the grandson of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer). John's mother Gail (Michelle Williams) begs J. Paul Getty to pay the kidnappers' ransom; when he refuses, she decides to rescue her son with the help of Getty's business associate, an ex-CIA agent named Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg). Directed by Ridley Scott, All the Money in the World originally starred Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty. When Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct, Scott reshot his scenes with Christopher Plummer in just nine days in order to meet the movie's planned release date. Inspired by historical events. Certain scenes, characters and dialogue have been fictionalized for dramatic purposes.
