All the Money in the World on Life's Lost Highway?

I saw the movie 'All the Money in the World' yesterday, which is a movie which has been surrounded by controversy over ... ironically ... money and sexual misconduct by a star who was replaced by another star after the film was shot.
"The story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother to convince his billionaire grandfather Jean Paul Getty to pay the ransom."
Balthazar Getty is the son of John Paul Getty III and the actor who appears in the love scene in the film 'Lost Highway' as 'Song to the Siren' plays in the background.
"Lost Highway is a 1997 French-American neo-noir film written and directed by David Lynch.
The movie features the last film appearances Blake, Jack Nance, and Richard Pryor, and the acting debut of Marilyn Manson.
It follows a man (Pullman) convicted of murdering his wife (Arquette), after which he is inexplicably changed into a young mechanic (Getty) and begins leading a new life."
Michelle Williams plays Gail Harris (Balthazar Getty's Grandmother) in the movie 'All the Money in the World' and Michelle's late ex-partner Heath Ledger, who she has a daughter to, also filmed a love scene in the movie 'Candy' to 'Song to the Siren'.
But here is a rather bizarre fact, Heath passed away on January 22nd, which happens to be Balthazar Getty's birthday, too.

I've written about 'Song to the Siren' before on this blog with my last post about it being this one -
Is the Siren Song an Archetypal Swan Song for Our Times Telling Us That We Have Buckley's Chance?
Just thought I should point out that Paz Vega is playing a character named Lizbeth in a film called 'Fall from Grace' also starring Balthazar Getty and David Lynch, while the film is being directed by David's daughter Jennifer Lynch.
I only point that out because Chris Knowles at 'The Secret Sun' blog has been running a series of interesting posts on the name Elizabeth and Vega/s.
"Inspired by the PJ Harvey song "Down by the Water", the song and its lyrics are integral to the storyline: appearing, and repeating throughout."
Abbie Cornish who was in the movie 'Candy' with Heath Ledger is also Chief Willoughby's wife in the movie 'Three Billboards Outside EBBING, Missouri'.
Ebbing is a word meaning that the tide is heading back out to the sea, by the way;-)
Sometimes real life is weirder than anything that Hollywood could ever dream up, I think.
