Wall Street 2: Gordon Gekko Is Coming Back

LOS ANGELES Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone are back together again with a sequel to their 1987 hit "Wall Street." Douglas is reprising his role as Gordon Gekko and Stone is on board again to direct the sequel, which for now has the working title "Wall Street 2," said 20th Century Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant. Brilliant said the project is timely and relevant given the state of the world.

"Gordon Gekko: Teldar Paper, Mr. Cromwell, Teldar Paper has 33 different vice presidents each earning over 200 thousand dollars a year. Now, I have spent the last two months analyzing what all these guys do, and I still can't figure it out. One thing I do know is that our paper company lost 110 million dollars last year, and I'll bet that half of that was spent in all the paperwork going back and forth between all these vice presidents. The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest. Well, in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated"

funny, this seems to escape the cost cutters of today . . . .

funny, this seems to escape the cost cutters of today . . . .What's funny, is that for some, fiction is reality. But I guess that's how we got our current president.

A far more accurate movie regarding business finances was Other Peoples' Money.

What was really great in it was that it was remarkably honest about both sides... and, in the climax, it has Gregory Peck get up and give this great, rousing speech about community and responsibility, so on.

And it's PECK, and he delivers it so well and so great in that resounding, stentorian voice of his that it seems utterly impossible to beat the speech. You expect there to be some sort of cheat at the end.

And then Devito gets up and Kicks... His... ASS...Great movie. One of the best for all three -- Peck, Devito, and Penelope Ann Miller.

Great! Yet another stupid movie with the delusional Oliver Stone giving the script his own inane twist...
