Rumors have been circulating for awhile about a sequel to Oliver Stone’s 1987
suspenders advertisement thriller, but now it is official. Wall Street 2, you guys. From the AP:
LOS ANGELES — Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone are back together again with a sequel to their 1987 hit “Wall Street.”
Douglas is reprising his role as Gordon Gekko and Stone is on board again to direct the sequel, which for now has the working title “Wall Street 2,” said 20th Century Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant.
Brilliant said the project is timely and relevant given the state of the world.
“We need to keep the story line under wraps, but it’s literally ripped from today’s headlines,” Brilliant said. “It’s going to be very big and very cool.”
Gregg Brilliant doesn’t want to give everything away, but it’s going to be very big and very cool. You know, like how Oliver Stone movies about nefarious financial transactions based on current events are “cool.” Zac Efron is going to play Gordon Gecko’s nephew. It’s basically going to be Jungle 2 Jungle, but with credit derivatives. There are going to be a bunch of scenes in which Charlie Sheen plays Wii. Cooooool.
But, so, you guys, what should the tagline for this inevitable success of a movie be?
- Wall Street 2: Greed Throttle
- Wall Street 2: At The Edge of Greed
- Wall Street 2: Greedgment Day
- Wall Street 2: The Greed Is Out There
- Wall Street 2: Oh Yes, There Will Be Greed
- Wall Street 2: Escape From Greedtasia
Those are so lazy! You guys are even lazier than I am, though, so this will be easy for you. Go.
