Ridley Scott’s ‘All the Money in the World’ Set as Closing Night Film at AFI Fest
AFI Fest has set the world premiere of Ridley Scott’s kidnapping drama “All the Money in the World” as its closing night film on Nov. 16 at the Tcl Chinese Theatre.

All the Money in the World,” the story of the 1973 kidnapping in Italy of John Paul Getty III — the rebellious teenage grandson of oil billionaire John Paul Getty, who was reluctant to pay the $17 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers. Kevin Spacey plays Getty while Michelle Williams plays the part of Gail Harris, the mother of John Paul Getty III, and Mark Wahlberg plays Getty’s adviser.

Harris and the boy’s father eventually convinced the elder Getty to pay a $2.9 million ransom, resulting in the teenager being freed after six months. Scott directed “All the Money in the World” from a David Scarpa script. Sony opens the film on Dec. 8.

Scott will be honored with a tribute prior to the screening with a moderated discussion
