When Ridley Scott made the quick decision to cut Kevin Spacey from his film 'All the Money in the World' and replace him with Christopher Plummer, he had a small window of time to get cast and crew to return for the unexpected reshoots. Scott told reporters that the cast all agreed to come back for very little money, but it's recently been revealed that that wasn't quite the case.

The whole situation is made more awkward by the fact that the two actors are represented by the same agency, WME.
