EXCLUSIVE: Sony has shifted the opening of the Ridley Scott-directed Getty Kidnap thriller All The Money In The World from December 22 to Christmas Day. The film was moved because December 25 is the biggest moviegoing day, and the extra three days creates a bit of space from the Hugh Jackman-starrer The Greatest Showman, which moved to December 20. Ridley Scott pulled off the unprecedented move of reshooting all the scenes with J Paul Getty, excising Kevin Spacey and recasting Christopher Plummer. Deadline broke the story that the studio, Scott and Imperative Entertainment producer Dan Friedkin made the decision, after Spacey’s sexual harassment scandal imperiled the film and it was pulled from the closing night slot at AFI. That was November 8. Scott did his reshoots on Thanksgiving week with Plummer, Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, and locked the film last week right before he turned 80. He had it ready to screen last Monday for members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in New York and Los Angeles, before they voted on Golden Globes nominations.
