New film about the Getty kidnapping makes headlines before its release

Posted: Updated:

A new film telling the story of a celebrity kidnapping hits theaters this weekend after production of the film made headlines over the last few weeks.

"All the Money in the World" tells the story of John Paul Getty's grandson who was kidnapped and held for ransom and the attempts his mother made to get her son back.

Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg lead the cast, which went through a major shakeup just weeks before the release.

Kevin Spacey was playing the role of the oil tycoon until sexual-misconduct allegations surfaced, leading director Scott Scott to make the move to replace the actor completely with another veteran actor, Christopher Plummer.

Ridley re-shot all of the scenes after Thanksgiving and somehow pulled it together.

MORE's Executive Producer Janie Rios screened the film and said she can see why it was nominated for three Golden Globes.

She said Plummer and Williams gave amazing performances, adding it was interesting to watch a film about a very publicized piece of history about a very famous family and giving the film four out of five stars.

"All the Money in the World" opens Christmas Day.
