Oliver Stone's upcoming sequel will feature another familiar face from the original film. According to The New York Times, director Oliver Stone has revealed that Charlie Sheen will reprise his role of Bud Fox in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. Take a look at an excerpt from the article that features more plot details as well.
"When Gekko comes out of prison in the beginning of this movie, he essentially has to redefine himself, redefine his character," Mr. Stone said. "He's looking for that second chance."
The rest of the cast includes Shia LaBeouf 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, begins this week in New York.
"We sort of started over with the story of a young man who is at the center of it, and how he needs Gordon Gekko's help to navigate those waters," said Alex Young, co-president of production at 20th Century Fox.
