All The Money In The World - Trailer 3

Mark Wahlberg received $1.5m (£1.1m) for reshooting his scenes in All The Money In The World, it has been reported, while Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000.

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

Scott received praise for successfully assembling his cast in Europe to reshoot 22 scenes featuring Spacey with Christopher Plummer, still in time for its release over the Christmas holidays. In interviews, he said all actors involved in the reshoot had agreed to do the scenes unpaid.

However the Washington Post reported Wahlberg's reshoot fee in November and noted he, "along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain".

USA Today later reported "three people familiar with the situation but not authorised to speak publicly about it" had confirmed the fees for Wahlberg and Williams. Williams, who is also represented by WME, was not told about Wahlberg's fee.

Williams, one of the founding members of the "Time's Up" campaign - a Hollywood-led response to sexual harassment and gender inequality - has not yet responded to the reports.

She had previously said of the reshoot: "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. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort."

Wahlberg was recently named the most overpaid actor of 2017 by Forbes.
