In a breaking Variety story, 20th Century Fox has brought Oliver Stone back to direct the sequel to his 1987 Wall Street. Also, there are strong rumors that one Shia LaBeouf is also involved.
"LaBeouf is negotiating to join Michael Douglas, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Gordon Gekko in the original pic. The sequel will once again involve a young Wall Street trader, and the recent economic meltdown spurred by rampant greed and corruption will fit prominently into the plot."
Al the way back in October, Wall Street Fighter actually called LaBoeuf out as the potential neo-Sheen (that sounds like a leather upholstery cleaner, doesn’t it?). Head on over there for more about that spot on prediction, and some other rumors about the film, pre-Stone.
And if you’re feeling greedy today, check out the infamous clip of one Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) preaching the me-first mantra that got us into this economic clusterf**k in the first place. Yes, I blame the shitty economy on one Michael Douglas.
