‘All The Money In The World’ & Remarkable Re-shoots

    It’s an independent filmmakers worst nightmare – your film’s in the can but you have to do a massive re-shoot. The logistics for the producer, AD, locations, uhg everyone it’s gonna make me go gray just thinking about it!

    Re-shoots can be a nightmare and for Ridley Scott, director of All The Money In The World, it’s something he aims never to do. In the below interview with the cast and director, Scott says, “I’m so efficient I don’t have re-shoots, ever … but if it happens I’m ready, whatever.”

    Because of the controversy around Kevin Spacey at the moment, Scott knew re-shoots were a must. If they didn’t recast and shoot all the scenes with Spacey’s character the film would suffer. So he flew out to Christopher Plummer and asked him to join the cast.

    There were a total of nine days of re-shoots, not to mention all the editing etc which needed to happen in order to still release on time.

    Ridley Scott is an excellent filmmaker, one we all aspire to be like, and at 81 he’s still proving even impossible circumstances have remarkable solutions. It gives this filmmaker hope. It takes a tenacious spirit to do it well and to do it right and Scott has definitely done this.
