Throughout his long and illustrious film career, visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott had to make the impossible, possible. And it looks like he has done it again -- and in record time, no less.

Check out the new (and improved) trailer for Scott's much-talked-about, true-life kidnapping thriller "All The Money In The World," in which the 80-year-old legendary director had to complete last-minute re-shoots to replace disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.

During the aftermath of Spacey's shocking sexual misconduct allegations in early November, Sony Pictures gave the go-ahead to recast Spacey and essentially throw away his completed performance as eccentric billionaire J. Paul Getty and replace it with a new actor.

Plummer, who was originally up for the role, was then hired to portray the 80-year-old oil tycoon in an unprecedented eleventh-hour reshoot, which rumoredly cost the studio approximately 10 million dollars (an additional expense to the film's original reported 40 million budget). Ridley Scott oversaw the 10-day shoot, which was just done and completed a week ago. While shooting the new scenes with Plummer, Scott and his editor, Claire Simpson, were simultaneously editing the film to make sure the deadline was met.

Still scheduled to hit theaters on December 22nd, "All The Money In The World" also stars Michelle Williams (possibly giving an awards-worthy performance) as Gail Harris, the distraught mother of John Paul Getty III (played by up-and-comer Charlie Plummer) who was the 16-year-old grandson of famed oil tycoon J. Paul Getty (Plummer) and who was kidnapped in 1973 by an Italian organized gang.

And despite being one of the richest men in the world, Getty refused to pay the 17 million-dollar ransom. Mark Wahlberg co-stars as one of Getty's security advisors, an ex-CIA officer who, against his boss's orders, decided to help Gail Harris retrieve her kidnapped son from the kidnappers.

synopsis:
ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
