Let me start by saying that I do not like the title for the Wall Street sequel. Wall Street 2 would have sufficed, but I guess making the title longer has become mainstream of late. Sounding cheesy, Fox has gone with Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. The film does have a saving grace, however, as the cast continues to become more ensemble.
Frank Langella for Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
Frank Langella has been cast to join Shia LaBeouf and Michael Douglas in Wall Street 2. Josh Brolin is supposedly also in negotiations to play a part.
Lengella will play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors LaBeouf's character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor's fate plays a major part in the film's plot.
Oliver Stone will direct the sequel off a script by Allan Loeb.
The first role for Langella since his Oscar-nominated performance in Frost/Nixon, the actor can next be seen in The Box opposite Cameron Diaz and James Marsden.
