Shia LaBeouf to star in Wall Street 2
Shia LaBeouf has been signed to star alongside Michael Douglas in the sequel to the 1987 movie Wall Street.
Oliver Stone will direct the movie. According to the synopsis:
In the film, Gekko (Douglas) has served his prison sentence and is warning everyone about the fall of Wall Street. No one listens to him so he devotes himself to mending his relationship with his estranged daughter. LaBeouf plays an ambitious, young Wall Street trader who is engaged to Gekko’s daughter. When LaBeouf’s mentor unexpectedly kills himself, he suspects that a hedge fund manager (Bardem) is responsible. LaBeouf seeks revenge on Bardem’s character and asks Gekko for help. Gekko agrees in return for help reconciling with his daughter. The film spans from June 2008 to the federal bail out.
LaBeouf, demonstrating his fitness for the role (not), said that the film was “a walk and talk money movie” that’s “wordy and heady.”
Filming is set to start in August.
