Filming Locations Guide: Where was Trust filmed?

Posted by Ra Moon

The FX Networks series is a fiction based on the real kidnapping in 1973 of John Paul Getty III, heir to the Getty oil empire, by the Italian mafia.

The young boy was wrongly convinced that his family would pay a substantial ransom for his release.

Trust was filmed in England, Rome, and some of the less-visited regions of Italy, the forgotten Calabria and Basilicata areas in the south of the country.

Where is Trust filmed

The renowned director of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle, tells the same story that Ridley Scott in the 2017 drama All the money in the world, although the productions have different points of view.

Donald Sutherland leads the cast as the tycoon J. Paul Getty, Harris Dickinson as his nephew, J. Paul Getty, Hilary Swank as the mother Gail Getty, and Brendan Fraser as private investigator James Fletcher.

Welcome to our spoiler-free guide to the magnificent filming locations of Trust.
