Wall Street 2? Seriously?

Wow. In the genre of sequels you never saw coming, Twentieth Century Fox is shooting for a sequel to Oliver Stone's Wall Street, which would return Michael Douglas to his Oscar-winning role.

The original 1987 drama won Douglas an Oscar for his role as cold-hearted takeover artist Gordon Gekko. The sequel will be titled Money Never Sleeps. Writer Stephen Schiff will write, but Oliver Stone is not involved. Usually I would say this is a bad thing, but have you seen Stone's movies of late?

Edward Pressman, who produced the original, will return for the sequel. Wow. Same financier. Amazing. This report comes from Variety.
