Wahlberg refused to work with Plummer until he was paid USD 1 mn
(4 months ago)
Los Angeles, Jan 12 : Actor Mark Wahlberg refused to approve the casting of Christopher Plummer as a replacement for disgraced actor Kevin Spacey in "All the Money in the World" until he was paid over USD 1 million.
Wahlberg's lawyer vetoed Plummer's casting in a letter to the film's financiers, saying the actor would only agree if he were paid the extra money.
"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me'," usatoday.com quoted a source as saying.
Earlier this week, there were reports that Wahlberg made $1.5 million for extensive reshoots on the film, while his co-star Michelle Williams received only $80 a day.
