There are plenty of sequels and reboots of films that shouldn’t be getting made today. From things like Big Mama’s House 2 to The Incredible Hulk, most of these films don’t really have a reason to get made. Then there is a film like Wall Street 2 that could have a decent social or economic message if it were done properly today. Luckily, this film sequel not only has the original cast returning, but Shia LaBeouf will be throwing his hat into the ring as well.
Recently, set pictures from the film have popped up online (form a Shia LaBeouf fansite) of LaBeouf shooting alongside Frank Langella in what looks like Central park, while being directed by Oliver Stone. Langella plays LaBeouf’s mentor in the film, teaching him the ways of Wall Street. Other than the fact that Michael Douglas is returning to reprise his legendary role of Gordon Gekko and that characters will most likely learn valuable lessons about the dangers of greed, we don’t know much else about the plot of the film.
Check out the images after the jump. Expect to see Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps in theaters April 23, 2010.
