Langella on Wall St. 2

08.10.2009

Frank Langella has just signed on for a role in Oliver Stone's long-awaited sequel to WALL STREET. The film is officially called WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS, and despite this title, will be hitting theaters as opposed to going straight to DVD as you might expect.

Awkward name aside, the movie is a full-fledged sequel, and with Langella coming on board, it’s got a pretty well-rounded cast to boot. Langella will play the mentor to Shia LaBeouf’s young broker character, and of course, Michael Douglas will be creeping around in the famous suspenders of Gordon Gekko once again. Josh Brolin is circling the project as well, but there's been no official word on his involvement yet.

It remains to be seen whether or not a WALL STREET sequel is indeed necessary or a good idea. Yes, it’s certainly relevant in our current state of economic peril, but in order to be effective, it should have some basis in reality. This may prove difficult as the original film had about as much to do with real-life stock and bond trading as STAR WARS had to do with NASA, but padding its cast with vets like Langella is certainly not a bad start.

I read a lot of articles where people are questioning whether or not a sequel is necessary or not. Doesn't everyone realize that no film is NECESSARY? It's entertainment. Stop taking this stuff so seriously. The only form of entertainment that is actually necessary is PORN. If suddenly for some reason, porn was taken away from men, forever, the murder rate would go through the roof.

The casting makes it sound interesting, but you're right the title sucks.

why?

Didn't they learn not to make sequels to old Michael Douglas movies? (Basic Instinct 2...?) With that said I will be seeing this movie.
