Douglas Back To The Bank For Wall Street 2
MICHAEL DOUGLAS is heading back to WALL STREET - he will return to the big screen as evil moneyman GORDON GEKKO.
Rumours of a sequel to the hit 1987 movie have mounted since the collapse of the modern global banking system - with film fans suggesting it is the perfect time for Douglas to reprise his Oscar-winning role as the ruthless banking boss.
And the actor has listened to cinemagoers' demands - agreeing to team up with director Oliver Stone again to shoot Wall Street 2.
20th Century Fox will begin filming in the summer (09).
A spokesman for the studio says, "We need to keep the story line under wraps, but it's literally ripped from today's headlines. It's going to be very big and very cool."
And Douglas can't wait to get back into his red braces, recently saying: "Gordon Gekko is a great, old-fashioned villain. And, interestingly enough, if you look at most actors' careers, their biggest achievement, not necessarily success... is playing a bad guy."
