Producers for the movie decided on last-second reshoots in November, replacing Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey with fellow Oscar victor Christopher Plummer after Hollywood's sexual harassment and assault scandal consumed Spacey, the newspaper stated.
And an additional source contradicted other reports that Wahlberg's contract did not include reshoots, while Williams did, and that his reshoots were more extensive.
A separate inside source said Wahlberg had his lawyer write a letter formally rejecting Plummer for the role unless his financial demands were met.
An anonymous source familiar with the situation told the publication, "What [Wahlberg] said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.'" The source said Wahlberg's contract granted him co-star approval.

Both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by the same talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, making their respective deals all the more curious.
Williams and Plummer were both nominated for Golden Globes for their performances, and are presumed shoe-ins for Oscar nominations.

Reps for Williams, Wahlberg, Scott, WME and the production company which funded the reshoot did not respond to requests for comment.
Williams said in multiple interviews while promoting the film that she had agreed to work for free on the reshoot, claiming she felt invigorated to be taking a pro-active stance in the wake of the Spacey allegations while helping Scott save the film.
"Everyone did it for nothing", Scott told USA Today last month. Did they think this wouldn't come out?
