Fascinating interview with director Ridley Scott about an emergency reshoot

This is a fascinating (though short) interview with famous director Ridley Scott on how he decided to reshoot a huge part of his latest film in a very short amount of time, to get rid of an actor with a major part in the film.

The real-life narrative depicted in All the Money in the World is quite the yarn — after his grandson is kidnapped... Director Ridley Scott originally cast Kevin Spacey as the 80-year-old Getty and covered him in prosthetics, but after the actor was the subject of numerous sexual-assault allegations in October, Sony pulled All the Money in the World from its planned premiere at AFI Fest. A wide release seemed untenable, and a delay of the film could have meant that Trust, an FX mini-series covering the same story, would come out first...

That’s when Scott settled on an unprecedented gambit: He would cast 88-year-old Oscar winner Christopher Plummer to take over the Getty role, convince Williams and Wahlberg to come back for reshoots over the Thanksgiving holiday, and quickly integrate the new footage into the movie so it could still hit a 2017 release date. Astonishingly, the results are seamless.
