The Daily Mail has just posted the first photos of Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf and Frank Langella on the set of “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.” The film will also star Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan, Susan Sarandon, Vanessa Ferlito and Charlie Sheen. Oliver Stone is directing.
Set in New York City, the film takes place 20 years after the original, revolving around the 2008 stock market crash. The film’s plot mainly centers around Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) acting as a more of an anti-hero rather than a villain, and follows his attempts to help Wall Street before its soon-to-be stock market crash, and to repair his relationship with his daughter Winnie (Mulligan); though all of his attempts are unsuccessful.
While Gekko is trying to fix his relationship with Winnie, Jake “Jacob”‘s (LaBeouf), mentor Lewis (Langella) unexpectedly dies, Jacob blames Bretton (Brolin), and soon after makes a deal with Gekko; Gekko helps Jacob get revenge on Bretton, and Jacob helps Gekko repair his relationship with Winnie, who is Jacob’s fiancee.
