Fox 'Green-lights' Wall Street Sequel "Money Never Sleeps"

http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2008/10/14...-about-return/

Unless you live under a rock or have a Swiss bank account, you’re probably freaking out about the economy like the rest of the world. Trust a movie studio to capitalize on the current focus on Wall Street, because according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is making a sequel to the 1987 film “Wall Street.”

Titled “Money Never Sleeps,” the film’s plotline is being kept under tight wraps, but the script is being penned by Allan Loeb. And yes, it will feature the character of Gordon Gekko, who was made infamous by a slick-haired Michael Douglas. Reportedly, Douglas is interested in playing the character again, but will decide whether to return when he sees the script.

Gekko’s fate at the end of the film is ambiguous, though it was always assumed (and confirmed by the film’s writer, Stanley Weiser) that he went to jail for his dastardly, money-grubbing ways. But as we’ve seen from real-life Wall Street scandals, the Gekkos of the world rarely see a jail cell. It’s inevitable that “Money Never Sleeps” will draw on current events — maybe we’ll find out Gekko escaped to wreak havoc on our bank accounts all over again.
------------------------
The timing of this is very good as the original came out shortly after the '87 crash. I really hope they can lure Douglas to come back into that character again. I'm sure Charlie Sheen can be persuaded.
