Ridley Scott’s Getty kidnapping film to premiere at AFI Fest
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ridley Scott’s film about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III will have its world premiere as the closing night film of the American Film Institute’s annual festival in Los Angeles next month.
AFI Fest director Jacqueline Lyanga said in a statement Thursday that in addition to the Nov. 16 screening of the new film “All the Money in the World,” the festival will also honor the prolific director’s career.
“All the Money in the World” stars Kevin Spacey as John Paul Getty Sr. and Michelle Williams as the kidnapped teenager’s mother. Mark Wahlberg co-stars as the wealthy family’s adviser during the ordeal.
The film is set to be released in theaters on Dec. 8.
