Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

Gordon Gekko resurfaces two decades later

wall_street_money_never_sleeps_michael_douglas_gordon_gecko_01This is the first photo of Michael Douglas reprising his Oscar winning role of Gordon Gekko in the now filming Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. Production has been underway in NYC for the last two weeks under the direction of Oliver Stone. The director has no excuse with all of Wall Street hijicks over the last few years not to hit this one out of the park. If he doesn’t it will be a big disappointment.

This is the film’s storyline: The film is set nearly two decades after the first film, with Gekko, having spent 14-years in prison for insider trading and security fraud, now making the lecture circuit as a published financial author. Frank Langella plays Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors Jacob Moore, a character played by Shia LaBeouf. Gekko befriends Jacob in hopes to reconnect with his daughter Winnie (Carrey Mulligan), Jacob’s wife.

Josh Brolin will play the film’s villain, a hedge fund mogul named Bretton James and Charlie Sheen will return for a cameo reprising his role of Bud Fox. Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps hits theaters April 26, 2010.

  1. Douglas appears to be leaving his trailer here. Interesting that they have his style still kind of stuck in the 80’s/90’s era. I guess that will happen since he has been out of the game for a 14 yr. stint. I hope this is good. The first film is so classic, and I really don’t like Shia, so I hope some how this film can overcome such a long absence and my general distaste for a key lead.
