While Oliver Stone has been set to take the role behind the lens of 'Wall Street 2', Shia LaBeouf is in talks to star.
"Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps" has found its director in the original film's helmer, Oliver Stone. Recent report has pointed out that the 62-year-old filmmaker has been set by 20th Century Fox to tackle the sequel project to 1987 hit movie about greed, "Wall Street".
Through this sequel, Stone will once again team up with Academy Award-winning actor Michael Douglas, who portrays ruthless corporate raider Gordon Gekko in the original film and the upcoming sequel. There is also possibility that this "W" director will also work with Shia LaBeouf since the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" star is in negotiation to star in the sequel.
"Wall Street 2" is a tentative title of the proposed "Wall Street" sequel. It reportedly will offer a young Wall Street trader and the recent economic meltdown spurred by rampant greed and corruption. The script will be provided by Allan Loeb, while Edward R. Pressman is back serving as the sequel's producer.
The original "Wall Street" was starred by Charlie Sheen, Daryl Hannah and Michael Douglas. It centers on a young stockbroker desperate to succeed and a wealthy but unscrupulous corporate raider whom he idolizes. The movie got Douglas his Oscar and Hannah a Razzie kudo for Worst Supporting Actress.
