Ridley Scott movie reshoot: Reports reveal $1.5m gender pay gap

Ridley Scott movie reshoot: Reports reveal $1.5m gender pay gap

A new report in USA Today claims that Mark Whalberg, who plays negotiator and former Central Intelligence Agency operative Fletcher Chase, made $1.5 million for All the Money in the World's reshoots.

USA Today sparked the outcry with an exclusive story saying Williams' total compensation for the reshoots was less than $1,000, meaning Wahlberg received more than 1,500 times as much. However, USA Today just reported that they "since learned Wahlberg's team actually negotiated a hefty fee, with the actor paid $1.5 million for his reshoots".

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.

Ridley Scott partially re-shot his latest movie after Kevin Spacey was sacked due to sexual misconduct allegations, with both Wahlberg and Williams called back to act opposite Spacey's replacement, Christopher Plummer. Wahlberg, who was named the highest paid actor by Forbes, was not.

Reactions on social media are critical, especially in light of the recent Golden Globes, in which Williams was nominated for her role in All the Money in the World.

"I thought I would have to raise my daughter to learn how to protect herself in a risky world and I think because of the work Tarana has done and the work I am learning how to do, we actually have the opportunity to hand our children a different world", Williams told Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview.

Woody Allen has been accused of sexually abusing his daughter Dylan Farrow . "I thought it would make a difference", she wrote. The protest comes after the #MeToo movement, where women's stories of harassment were shared from Hollywood and beyond.


The report notes that the reshoot cost $10 million, which was put up by producer Imperative Entertainment. Williams was not told about the pay differences, USAToday reported. "Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them". "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

Mark Wahlberg (L) and Michelle Williams attend the premiere of Sony Pictures Entertainment's "All The Money In The World" at Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, December 18, 2017. Christopher Plummer was given the role, but the other principal actors had to come in to shoot additional scenes. And his co-star Michelle Williams got a lot less.

The film, which was released in time for Christmas, was heralded as a triumph for the director, who was able to seamlessly remove Spacey from it without affecting the bottom line. He had the ability to negotiate since he already had taken a pay cut.

"Starting with the current test build ... you will be able to report players directly from the replay feature of our game". Another big new feature of the update is the replay report tool, which allows you to tag cheaters from the replay screen.


USA Today says Scott, 80, told the paper "all of them, everyone did it for nothing".
