Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

Not a review, but a heads up - perhaps old news to some of you, but I just heard on the radio that Olly Stone is currently filming the sequel to his classic 1987 film.  I know many have lost faith in Stone in recent years (many long before that), but I, for one, continue to keep the faith, and am intrigued.  It will be interesting to see where Stone goes with this in light of what has happened over the past 20+ years, and especially the last few.  A current economic climate that is far more volatile and vulnerable than the market was in the mid 80s should provide Stone with meaty material.  Douglas and Sheen are set to reprise their original roles, and Shia TheBeef will star.  I am, however, slightly leery of the plot synopsis pulled directly from IMDB:

"As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader's mentor".

Hmmmm......starting to have second thoughts about that whole "keeping the faith" thing...

I like Stone's movies too. Wall Street has not dated very well (I rewatched it earlier this year) so it'll be interesting how or if he changes things up.
