News: LaBeouf In Talks To Take Over Sheen’s Greedy Role

I think Shia LeBeouf would be a really good choice for the second Wall Street movie.

Shia LaBeouf is in talks to take over Charlie Sheen‘s role as a desperate young stockbroker in the forthcoming sequel to 1987 film Wall Street.

LaBeouf is negotiating with bosses at 20th Century Fox to join Michael Douglas, who’s been recast by director Oliver Stone for Wall Street 2, a follow-up to the Oscar-winning drama, reports Variety.

Sheen starred as Bud Fox in the original, about a young broker struggling to get to the top while surrounded by greed and corruption.

The original film’s stars received mixed reviews. Douglas won an Oscar for Best Actor for his role as ruthless Wall Street player Gordon Gekko while Daryl Hannah‘s performance earned her a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress.

News: Douglas Mulls Wall Street Sequel

I am a big fan of Michael, so to see him reprise the role in which won him an Oscar I think would be fantastic !!!

Michael Douglas is considering a multi-million dollar offer to reprise his role as wicked money man Gordon Gekko in a Wall Street sequel.

Twenty-two years after Douglas’ Oscar-winning performance in the first film, studio bosses are trying to convince him to slip back into a pin-striped suit and head back to New York’s financial district.

According to the National Enquirer, Charlie Sheen – who starred as Bud Fox in the original – has already been ruled out of the sequel.
