Two more for Wall St

08.14.2009

In the "you kinda already knew this" department, Carey Mulligan and Josh Brolin have signed on to co-star with Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf and Frank Langella in WALL STREET 2. Brolin is stepping in to replace Javier Bardem who had been in talks to star as the villainous hedge fund manager who may or may not be responsible for the death of LaBeouf's mentor. Mulligan, who has to be a front-runner for an Oscar for her work in the upcoming AN EDUCATION, will play Gordon Gecko's daughter who, as you might imagine, is also schtupping LaBeouf.

Both of these castings have been rumored for a while but with people like Bardem being rumored and going in and out, it's good to have some official confirmation. I'm still not completely sold on the idea of a WALL STREET 2 but I'll admit part of that is the name itself. Bill the film as its subtitle, MONEY NEVER SLEEPS, instead and it's already looking better.

Extra Tidbit: Filming is set to begin later this month.

I can't for the love of me understand what made Wall Street so sequel worthy, but i'll still give this a go.

OMG

It is such a waist of good production money to make this movie. The producers should be drawn and quartered.

Awesome! So now we can watch Shia LaBeouf frantically screaming 100 words per minute with the same wide-eyed look on his face for 2 hours on wall street instead of 2 hours in a jungle or a desert!

sequel not a bad idea

I know people on this site goosestep to the beat of hating sequels just on the premise, but this is a topic that warrants a sequel. The temptations and crimes on Wall St. changed since the first movie - and Gecko is dated, frankly. To acknowledge how things have changed and show a new breed of financial villain would be worth depicting. Stone hasn't ever gone in for an unnecessary sequel - so I think he's probably got some good ideas. I'd hope that LaBeouf isn't a one for one equivalent to
