‘Wall Street 2’ starts filming in NY

So what does a big-time director do for an encore on the theme of greed? Nothing, just put it to rest. But when the economy goes into the greatest tailspin since the Depression because of Wall Street, the horn comes calling. And so director Oliver Stone returns to that famous street that he epitomized in his 1987 movie 'Wall Street'.

'Wall Street 2' started filming in New York with Stone at the helm. But why a sequel? “This is where the money is,” he said, borrowing the words of Willie Sutton, the Depression-era bank robber. “There is more gold here than anywhere in the world.”

“I thought it was a bubble that was over,” Mr. Stone said of the 1980s. “I thought those days were going to come to an end. The excess.”

Michael Douglas returns as Gordon Gekko, now just released from prison and looking to re-invent himself. The film also stars Shia LeBouf as Jake Moore, a young trader who is the fiancé of Gekko’s daughter, played by Carey Mulligan; Josh Brolin as the head of an investment bank; Frank Langella as Jake’s mentor; and Susan Sarandon as Jake’s mother. Charlie Sheen, who played the central role of Bud Fox, a young trader, in the original, will make a cameo in the sequel. Shooting for the film, which will be released by 20th Century Fox next April, began last week in New York.
