Shia LaBeouf stars with Michael Douglas, who’ll reprise his Best Actor Oscar-winning role as Gordon Gekko role 21 years later. Josh Brolin is currently in talks to star in the film as well.
Oscar nominated Langella (“Frost/Nixon”) will play Lewis Zabel, a mentor to Shia LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker.
Allan Loeb (”21,” “Things We Lost In The Fire”) has scripted the project. The story reportedly finds Gekko finishing his prison sentence and attempting to reconcile with his estranged daughter, who is dating LaBeouf’s character.
Frank Langella will next be seen starring with Cameron Diaz and James Marsden in Richard Kelly-directed thriller “The Box” and Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst.
“Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” is supposed to start shooting this week and is scheduled to be released in early 2010.
