Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone Confirmed For Wall Street 2, Shia LaBeouf in Talks to Join the Cast

Shia LaBeouf Could Join Stone, Douglas For Wall Street 2

Get ready for more tales of greed and corruption on the big screen: Michael Douglas and director Oliver Stone have officially signed on for a sequel to Wall Street, and Shia LaBeouf is also in talks for a part.

Wall Street 2 will again focus on the life of Gordon Gekko (Douglas), who's just emerging from prison into a financial landscape far different from the high-flying one he left behind. LaBeouf is circling the role of a young trader. Variety says "the recent economic meltdown spurred by rampant greed and corruption will fit prominently into the plot."

I'm impressed that this sequel has already wrapped up so much of the high-level talent from the original film, and there's probably no denying that the current economic meltdown could be a compelling story. Douglas himself just said, "Everybody's talking about the economy and people are scrutinizing it. Whenever I mention Wall Street 2, everybody goes, 'Yeah. Interesting. I'd see that.'" So: Would you?

Yeah, I was so young when I saw Wall Street...I don't remember liking it either. But I'd watch a sequel if Shia is in it. He's such a cutie.

I barely remember seeing Wall Street. I would totally go see Wall Street 2 though. If Shia's in it that will be a bonus.
