Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps had a screening in France a couple days ago, and the primary Out of Competition screening was this morning. Reception to the film seems to be generally positive, with a few mixed notes. But what about a third movie? As director Oliver Stone has been doing the press rounds in Cannes, he’s talked a lot about last year’s financial meltdown, and hit a few other topics. Among them was the not entirely surprising notion that this film was written with the possibility of a third in mind. Read More »

With the release of Oliver Stone‘s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps set for April, its publicity game is just starting to ramp up. Fitting then that Vanity Fair, former mag-home of the late Dominick Dunne, has a new photo shoot for this sequel of modern greed and murder courtesy of flashy, money-strapped photog Annie Leibovitz. After the jump is a new image of Michael Douglas‘s Gordon Gekko, a vacant behind-the-scenes vid of the shoot, and thoughts on Gekko’s lease on life post-prison.

Quick, who’s the most obvious cameo to have in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps? I guess I’ve already given it away right there in the headline, but you should have had the answer anyway: Donald Trump. The cameo is so on the nose that I would have disbelieved it if I only read the account from the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid. They make stuff up all the time, after all. But there are photos and everything, of Trump with returning star Michael Douglas, and director Oliver Stone.

We don’t know who Trump plays, but I’d put my money on ‘Donald Trump’. Hopefully it’ll be nothing but a very brief appearance; I’ll have enough trouble looking at Gordon Gekko twenty years later without dealing with the distraction of Trump’s hair. Nic Cage has nothing on that guy.

After the break, a whole slew of actors join the indie Waska.

Oliver Stone Talks Wall Street 2


In the history of misunderstood movies, one that stands tall is Oliver Stone‘s original Wall Street. The 1987 film was not even thinly veiled in its contempt of money players like Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas. Yet to this day Stone still meets people on the street who quote Gekko’s lines (“Greed…is good”) and claim that the movie, and Gekko’s character in particular, pushed them into a career on the real Wall Street. “There’s an absurdity to it,” Douglas told the New York Times, which also spoke with Stone about the reasons for finally making a sequel on the eve of the shoot for Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, which will reunite Stone and Douglas after 23 years.

Frank Langella is in talks to join the cast of Oliver Stone‘s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. Langella would play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors Shia LaBeouf‘s character, a young Wall Street broker named Jacob. It is not clear if this is the same role that Javier Bardem , and later, Bardem’s No Country For Old Men co-star Josh Brolin had been considering. The Variety article mentions that Brolin is still in talks for the film, which leads us to believe that the two roles are seperate, despite both being described as mentors of Shia LaBeouf’s character.
