Variety reports that Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) is joining the cast of Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, the sequel to be directed by Oliver Stone at 20th Century Fox.
Shia LaBeouf stars with Michael Douglas, who’ll reprise his Gordon Gekko role. Josh Brolin is reportedly circling a part in the Allan Loeb-scripted drama as well.
Langella is in talks to play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor’s fate plays a major part in the film’s plot.
