Oliver Stone says new “Wall Street” movie about “family”


Hollywoodnews.com: Oliver Stone and the cast of the anticipated sequel “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” spoke to press at the Cannes Film Festival this morning after the film screened for critics and audience members.

The film finds Michael Douglas reprising his role of corporate tycoon Gordon Gekko, a part for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. In the story, Gekko reconnects with his estranged daughter (Carey Mulligan) as he mentors a new financial raider (Shia LaBeouf), who also happens to be his potential, on-screen son-in-law.

“This is a story about family. This is a story about people who are balancing their love of power and money with their need for love,” Oliver Stone told a press conference at Cannes.

Anne Thompson, reporting from Cannes, says the press screening “was packed and earned applause,” and that the film “is Oliver Stone in mainstream studio mode,” but adds that Gekko’s return is “problematic” and the movie “follows so many threads and characters that none of them is fully-fledged, somehow.”

“Wall Street 2” will be in theaters on Sept. 24, 2010.
