Ridley Scott has increased the number of his promising movies. According to Deadline, the British master intends to movie the real story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the grandson of billionaire Jean Paul Getty.
All the Money in the World will be fully funded by Imperative Entertainment, while Sony Pictures will be responsible for worldwide distribution. Who will play the main character of this drama - the mother of the kidnapped Gail Harris, is still unknown. The role was offered to Angelina Jolie, but she could not take part in the picture due to other obligations. Now the main contender is considered Natalie Portman, negotiations with which continued at the time of this writing. She will have to get back into shape as soon as possible after the birth of her baby, as movieing is scheduled to begin in May 2017.
Recall that the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III took place in 1973. The criminals demanded $ 17 million in ransom, but Jean Paul Getty, one of the richest men of his time, refused to allocate the required amount. Gail Harris was the mediator in these negotiations.
It is worth noting that in mid-2016 it became known about Danny Boyle's intention to shoot a series dedicated to the same dramatic events.
