Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street” sequel, which currently has the cheesy title “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,” is continuing to recruit a high caliber of acting talent. Shia LaBeouf is already on board as a young Wall Street broker, Michael Douglas has agreed to reprise his Oscar-winning role as Gordon Gekko and Josh Brolin is also in talks to join the cast. Now, Variety reports Frank Langella will join the 20th Century Fox flick.
Langella will play an old-time broker who guides LaBeouf’s character and whose fate is a major part of the film’s plot.
An Oscar nominee earlier this year for his role as disgraced President Richard Nixon in “Frost/Nixon,” Langella will be seen next in Richard Kelly’s thriller “The Box” and Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ryan Gosling and Kristen Dunst.
Production on “Wall Street 2” is expected to start this fall.
