Mark Wahlberg Reportedly Blocked 'All The Money' Reshoots Without Million Dollar Paycheck


However, it was revealed that Mark Wahlberg received $1.5m (£1.1m) to reshoot his scenes, while co-star Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000, taking an $80 per diem fee instead. Director Ridley Scott confirmed to USA Today that he did not take a check for the reshoot.

Ridley Scott's Getty kidnapping drama was hastily reshot the week of Thanksgiving after a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Kevin Spacey, who previously starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

They spoke of how Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract with one source saying: "What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them." .

A separate inside source said Wahlberg had his lawyer write a letter formally rejecting Plummer for the role unless his financial demands were met.

USA Today reported that Wahlberg, a two-time Oscar nominee, and Williams are represented by the same company, William Morris Endeavor.

A Washington Post report has now claimed that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million, while Williams made less than $ 1,000.

This means that the single mother traveled to Italy in late November for a last-second reshoot while being paid 0.05 per cent what her male co-star was making for his work.

The actors union SAG-AFTRA responded to the initial reports of the pay inequality between Wahlberg and Williams by stating that they "are unambiguously in favor of pay equity between men and women in this industry and support every action to move in this direction".

Although the actor has not commented on the reshoots, before or after this news broke, Williams told USA Today a month ago, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", Williams said.

'I'm so much more interested in what you have to say than what I have to say, ' Williams told reporters about her date on the red carpet.

Let's not forget, it was Williams who walked away from the film with a Golden Globe nomination.

"I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", she said.
