More on that Wall Street sequel

More on that Wall Street sequel
Caffeinated Clint

With Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone


And yes, it is a sequel.

When IESB first got word from Michael Douglas, himself, that another “Wall Street” movie was in the works, some wondered whether the Oscar Winner was actually referring to a straight-up hell-yeah bring-that-shit-on sequel, or a – boo! hiss! – remake, with Douglas’s involvement probably limited to executive producing.

Had a chat to someone at FOX this past weekend (well my weekend, their Friday) about the film, who confirmed that it’s indeed in the works and that it’s a sequel. Thank god.

It’s Douglas. It’s Oliver Stone. It’s Ed Pressman, producing.

“It’s a continuation of the Gordon Gecko story….set twenty-odd years later”, I’m told. “Basically, it’d start with Gecko coming out of jail – everything caught up with him, as it did most people like him at the end of the 80s – and then having to apply his ways to the very changed world.”

Apparently, both Douglas and “Wall Street” director Oliver Stone are in the “early stages” of writing the film.

As for whether Chuck Sheen will return, to reprise his role from the first film, doesn’t sound like it. “No idea, but doubtful. Heard nothing on Sheen. I assume, maybe, the only other person that might return is Sean Young – amusingly enough – as Douglas’s wife. Have to wait to see the script, though”.

Whatever the case, it’s good news. A sequel I truly would be keen to see – heard from another source that a “Short Circuit 3″ got greenlit recently, something Steve Guttenberg might be involved in, can’t say that news got me as damp – and, I’m guessing, something that Douglas’s would be keen to see come to fruition.

I’m betting a few of you would gladly hand over some cabbage for “Wall Street 2″ above anything else – including his most recent effort, “The Sentinel” – that MD has in the cards, right?

Just for ol’ times sake, let’s say it together :

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed — for lack of a better word — is good.

Greed is right.

Greed works.

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.

And greed — you mark my words — will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.
