It's looking like Natalie Portman will be joining the production, a week after Angelina Jolie turned down the same role due to scheduling conflicts. Portman is coming off an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Jackie Onassis in last year’s Jackie, as well as giving birth days before this year’s Oscars ceremony.
Portman’s role in All the Money in the World would be that of Gail Harris, whose son John Paul Getty III was kidnapped and held for a $17 million ransom. The former daughter-in-law of John Paul Getty Sr – one of the richest men in the world at the time of the abduction – Harris faced an uphill battle to convince the oil magnate to pay the ransom that would free his 16-year-old grandson. After being held in a cave in Rome for six months, John Paul Getty III was released when his grandfather relented and paid the ransom – thanks in no small part to the efforts of Gail Harris.
