Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

Scott told USA Today in December that, while he paid the crew and Plummer for the reshoot, he, Williams and the other actors were willing to do their scenes for free.

Both actors had to work over the Thanksgiving holiday to finish the film with Plummer, and Williams told USA Today at the time, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

Both performers are with William Morris Endeavor - although each is repped by separate agents there - which has only fueled the perception of injustice.

The second reason Williams walked away with what amounted to almost $80 a day for reshoots is that, because Wahlberg's contract didn't necessitate reshoots, he was able to renegotiate his pay for them. A source described as "an individual with knowledge of the deal", said Wahlberg's contract established nothing about reshoots for the movie All the Money in the World. Portman, for example, said she was paid three times less than her male co-star Ashton Kutcher for the 2011 movie "No Strings Attached". "She's a brilliant Oscar-nominated Golden Globe-winning actress", raged indignant USA actress Jessica Chastain on Twitter.

Deadline learned today that before any of the reshoots occurred, Wahlberg took an 80% cut on what he normally earns ($15 million-plus a movie) in order to work with Scott and because it was a potential awards contender. The process cost a reported $10 million.

Meanwhile, the publisher of " Fire and Fury " said any efforts to suppress the book are "flagrantly unconstitutional". But Wolff told MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "it was not directed at Manafort, it was directed directly at Don.

When Scott made the unprecedented decision to reshoot, in the wake of the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Spacey in November, he and his team had to move quickly since the film's scheduled release was just one month away.

Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer only one month before the film was set to hit theatres a year ago, after sexual harassment allegations emerged. The reps said the actor "never" works for free and demanded the money, with the financiers agreeing to pay as they had no choice. 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.

What's alarming and preposterous about this revelation is that Williams is a markedly more gifted and critically recognized film presence than Wahlberg, who hasn't even given a noteworthy acting performance in his career. 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.

Imperative Entertainment, the company that produced it, ultimately agreed to US$1.5 million.
