LaBeouf and Bardem to Join Douglas on ‘Wall Street’

Shia LaBeouf and Javier Bardem are taking on Michael Douglas in the forthcoming sequel to 1987 film Wall Street.

Douglas has been recast as ruthless Wall Street player Gordon Gekko by director Oliver Stone for Wall Street 2, a follow-up to the Oscar-winning drama — and he’s landed an all-star cast. 

Transformers star LaBeouf is set to play an ambitious trader who is engaged to Gekko’s daughter, while Bardem will take on the role of a risk-taking hedge-fund manager.

The original film’s stars received mixed reviews. Douglas won an Oscar for Best Actor for the movie while Daryl Hannah‘s performance earned her a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress.

Wall Street 2 is slated to begin filming in August.
