The first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone‘s much-anticipated sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is now online courtesy of IMDB.
The sequel comes 23 years after the 1987 original, Wall Street, which starred Michael Douglas as a financial master with questionable techniques who mentors and grooms a young new hot shot (Charlie Sheen) in the world of stocks. Douglas returns in the sequel after going to prison for a long time and ready to groom yet another young gun stockbroker (Shia LaBeouf) who just so happens to be engaged to his daughter (Carey Mulligan).
The teaser trailer is very well done and will get you excited for seeing a long trailer and the movie itself. You can immediately get a sense for the humor that Stone is going to bring to the table, and the natural humor that will come from someone like Douglas’s Gordon Gekko being re-released back into a wild that is absolutely NOTHING like the wild that he was once king of.

Another big name actor in Susan Sarandon has been added to the growing impressive cast of Oliver Stone‘s sequel Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. The movie is a follow-up to 1987’s Wall Street, which followed a young stock trader who becomes snagged in the dirty (and highly-profitable) underbelly of the trading world when big timer Gordon Gecko (Michael Douglas) takes him under his paper wings.
In the sequel, Douglas returns as Gecko, who is just being released after a long prison sentence. In order to reconnect with his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), he helps out her fiance (Shia LaBeouf), who is fittingly a new talent in the world of stock trading.
The newest name to join the impressive cast for Oliver Stone‘s long-coming sequel to 1987’s Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps, is Frank Langella. The great actor will join the returning Michael Douglas and other newcomer actors like Shia Labeouf, Javier Bardem, and possibly Josh Brolin, if he accepts an offer that supposedly went out to him.
Langella will reportedly be playing Lewis Zabel, an old broker and mentor to Shia Labeouf’s character, who’s a young gun on Wall Street. We’ve heard that two or three of the characters would be mentors so far, so that makes it a tad hazy as to what exactly is going on here.
Alright, so we have known for a while now that the Wall Street sequel, Money Never Sleeps would involve the infamous Gordon Gecko (Michael Douglas), his daughter, and the young stock trader she’s engaged to (Read: Oliver Stone & Michael Douglas Set To Return For “˜Wall Street 2″²). What we have not known is who exactly would be playing this daughter — a question that we now have an answer to.
Latino Review — who has been the one true source for exclusive Wall Street 2 news — has now learned that actress Carey Mulligan has been cast as Winnie Gecko. Mulligan is an up-and-coming actress whose biggest roles are 2005’s Pride and Prejudice as one of Keira Knightly’s younger sisters, as well as an appearance in this summer’s Johnny Depp and Christian Bale action/crime drama Public Enemies. These two films are highlights of an already-impressive resume for the 24-year old from England, who with a handful of projects in production, is looking to make a name for herself in the near future.
