Greed: Still Good?
Posted on Oct 14, 2008
What would Gordon Gekko, the ruthless corporate raider from Oliver Stone’s 1987 classic cautionary tale “Wall Street,” have to say about the current state of the American economy? Well, we just might find out.
As Wall Street continues to capture headlines due to market volatility, 20th Century Fox is moving forward with a “Wall Street” sequel.
Allan Loeb (“21”) has been tapped to pen the screenplay, which is being fast-tracked by the studio as a Michael Douglas starrer, though the actor is not formally attached.
Perhaps by now longtime fans of Gordon Gekko (played by Michael Douglas) might understand that “Wall Street” was not supposed to be a how-to manual for aspiring financial stars.
