OK--we were going to see this when the first trailers w/Spacey came out
Then Spacey was exposed and they recast/filmed w/Plummer--much more elegant as Getty--
So we were like ok--we still want to see it
Now with the way Michelle Williams was screwed on the money front, I am wondering why it is OK to boycott because the original w/Spacey was objectionable but now knowing how Wahlberg took advantage of the reshoot to enrich himself and say F-U to the other actors--and basically screwed Michelle Williams who won a Golden Globe for her performance and likely will get Oscar nomination...there is not the same mention of boycotting the film as protest of the injustice...

If I were Ms. Williams--who gave up Thansgiving with her daughter to refilm her shots-- would definitely change my representation---
The COMPANY knew even if her own agent might not---believe me---the company knew they were doing good for Markie Mark...and it just highlights the disparity between capable female actors and male counterparts...

Why anyone would need to work for a reduced wage on the original movie with a director like Scott and two/three stars like the headliners is beyond my scope---
It looks like this would have been a great holiday film and done well at the box office
I can't believe there were no salaries tied to the overall success and backend monies if the film was a success...
The fact that director Scott was touting the "fact" that the actors basically reshot for minimum to enable the second version with Plummer makes him seem less than credible going forward--
If he didn't really know all the details then he should have kept his mouth shut...

Reviewers who saw both have said Plummer was better than Spacey
Dont think it is feel-good family values
And Wahlberg likely sop to overseas buyers for his pull

What is your complaint
U are insightful

My suspicion is that Wahlberg wasn't trying to say FU to the other actors. When Williams was contacted regarding the reshoot, she said basically "sure, and because of the reason for the re-shoot, I would like to refuse (return?) the money I would earn from this". Wahlberg likely didn't know this. Meanwhile, he has a clause in his contract where he has a right to approve costars (according to what I heard on the news this morning) and because he wasn't involved in the recast, he (or perhaps his management company, on his behalf) was able to negotiate a higher fee (who wouldn't, if given the opportunity?)

The blame here lays on the part of the management company, who represents them both. Clearly they have a favorite client. LOL

I read Wahlburg was unhappy to take less than his normal fee range--felt he was being taken "advantage" of by the companies involved because his name was the "only" bankable one
Wahlburg does have rep as pushy and self-aggrandizing

Williams had already worked for a reduced fee even if her max is less than his
And I supose she trusted her representation to be fair
I think she has claim against her agency--
There is a fiduciary responsibility there being ignored I think
