‘Wall Street’ Sequel Getting the Greenlight

20th Century Fox is moving forward with a sequel to 1987's Wall Street, with Allan Loeb (21) set to pen the screenplay. The project is being fast-tracked by the studio as a Michael Douglas starring vehicle, however the actor is not officially attached.

According to Variety, the modern-day story will again center on Gordon Gekko, who has recently been sprung from prison and re-emerges into a much more tumultuous financial world than the one he once lorded over. The Bud Fox character, played by Charlie Sheen in the original, will not appear in the latest incarnation.

Edward R. Pressman, who produced the Oliver Stone-directed film, is aboard to produce.

No production date has been set.

              Cool...The original Wall Street movie was a great morality tale of corruption with a best actor Oscar win for Michael Douglas and more critical acclaim for a young Charlie Sheen. His father, Martin Sheen starring as his father and head of an airline union, was one of his better performances.

              With wild volatility in the stock markets occurring world wide, Gekko's corporate raider return would make for an interesting, bumpy ride.
