Frank Langella joins cast of Wall Street 2; can Josh Brolin be far behind?

According to Variety, Frank Langella is “in talks” to star in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps as Lewis Zabel, an “old-time” broker who mentors Shia LaBeouf’s character. But if that’s so, what the hell is Michael Douglas going to be doing in the movie? Since there isn’t a source cited, I really don’t know what to think of the summary that’s on the IMDB page:

As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader’s mentor.

The trade mag also names Josh Brolin (the upcoming Jonah Hex) as “circling a part” in the film, and I’m guessing that his character would be a dramatic foil to LaBeouf’s.

Only time will tell when it comes to nebulous details.

    Seems simple to me – Frank Langella will be playing the mentor who dies at the beginning of the film. Michael Douglas will partner up with Shia LaBeouf to find out who was responsible for Langella's death.

    I think Trisha Lynn's point was more that we don't know where that IMDB plot summary came from, so it might not be accurate.

    Hmmm. Will greed still be good, contrary to recent evidence?
