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 $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.
