Academy Award Nominee Frank Langella (“Frost/Nixon”) is being courted by director Oliver Stone to join “Wall Street 2 : Money Never Sleeps”, says Variety.

The veteran actor, whose range of credits include such dissimilar fare as “Dracula”, “Masters of the Universe”, and “Lolita”, is in talks to play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors Shia LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor’s fate plays a major part in the film’s plot.

The Allen Loeb-written sequel will see Michael Douglas reprise his role as Gordon Gecko. Josh Brolin is also in talks for a part.

“Money Never Sleeps” is set in 2008, and fixes on Gekko (Douglas) trying to warn stock traders of Wall Street’s soon-to-be federal bail out, after failed attempts. He then tries to repair his relationship with his now-estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan). Soon after Gekko makes a deal with Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), Winnie’s fiance, to help him with his relationship with Winnie. In return, Gekko seeks Jacob’s help in getting revenge on Jaocb’s hedge fund manager (Brolin), whom is suspected of being involved in Jacob’s mentor’s (Langella) death.
