Hero Or Knave, He's Back

Zero Hedge's picture





 

A BLACK SCREEN



Onto which is written in white letters...

 

“When business in the United States underwent a
contraction... the Federal Reserve created more paper
reserves.

 

The excess credit spilled over into the market triggering a
fantastic speculative boom... “

 

 

EXT. CLINTON CORRECTIONAL FACILITY - DAY



It’s a summer day. The heat floats above the pavement.
A cab waits in the lot.

 

The large gates of New York’s largest prison open and today’s
group of newly released emerge.

 

They pass a guard who lifts up a copy of The USA Today to
reveal the headlines and date that tells us it’s 2002.

 

Amongst this group we find a man carrying a small duffel.

 

And we know this man. He is Gordon Gekko.

An anonymous Zero Hedge reader (our favorite kind) points us to the script for "Money Never Sleeps."

We haven't even read the whole thing yet, we wanted to get it to you asap, but Cody Willard makes an appearance in the first five pages.  What does that tell you?

If you read a little bit further I believe Dennis Kneale also makes an appearance.  What does that tell you?

Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.

I read the whole thing & enjoyed it, and this could be made into a movie as good as or even better than the original if they do it right.

As did I, and I just can't see Shia playing Jacob, he's way tooo much of a p*ssy, although he'll bring more mainstream audiences to the theater.  Still, there's gotta be a capable, properly-aged actor better-suited, no?

 

Also, sooo much corniness/lameness in the script!  Evil HF manager "Breton Woods" you gotta be kidding me!

At 125 pages, this isn't a prank.  This is a spec script by a serious screenwriter.

Yes the serious screenwriter forced puke and piss from my azz. I think Cody could and would drop Tyler.

Rust does not sleep too. I do though, and I just did at page 37.

Talking dogs and talking cats could make this script a hit, as long as Jeff Beck does the sound track.

Just like the original when it was released marked a top in the market before a huge pullback, so shall this release date mark another top.  When does it hit the big screen???

There was an internet headline within the past 5 days which read, "Langella lined up for 'Wall Street 2.'"  So this is all (all) a BIG prank or the script and headline are genuine.  Not sure which to believe.  Up is the new down, left is the new right, sky was yellow and the sun was blue.

ummm, Just reading what's here, main characters first appearance, by name, should be all caps...The lines aren't broken up properly, there are multiple shots within a single line, it's not very good formating, just an FYI...

I painstakingly read the entire script.

I thought it was funny that one of the antagonists was named Bretton Woods, who is 45.

If this script is a scam, someone went to an awful lot of trouble in creating it.

Frank Langella will join the cast of "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps," the Oliver Stone-directed sequel for 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.

It's Langella's first role since his Oscar-nominated turn as Richard Nixon in "Frost/Nixon" in 2008.

He will next be seen starring with Cameron Diaz and James Marsden in Richard Kelly-directed thriller "The Box" and Andrew Jarecki's "All Good Things" with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst.

WME reps Langella. Stone and Edward R. Pressman are producing with Eric Kopeloff.
