Ridley Scott filming new movie in Rome
Filmmaker Ridley Scott has started shooting his new movie All the Money in the World on location in Rome.
The film tells the story of the tensions and controversies surrounding the infamous 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, grandson of oil magnate John Paul Getty.
Italy’s production industry has had a profile boost since the government expanded the country’s filming tax credit support.
“It’s a good credit,” said Mark Huffam, a regular Ridley Scott collaborator and a producer on All the Money in the World, in comments to Variety. “It’s structured so that you get quite a lot of your cash back as you go along.
“There’s a lot of regulation – once you apply for a permit and it’s granted, it takes several weeks to change a date.”
Scott is reportedly scheduled to spend seven weeks filming in Rome.
In August, Scott’s filmmaking compatriot Danny Boyle arrives in the Italian capital to start work on his own version of the Getty story – entitled Trust – that will be a ten-part miniseries for FX Networks.
