Admit it. You love the 1987 movie ‘Wall Street’ as much as we do. What could be more fun than the drinking game it spawned which requires you to drink: anytime the time is shown, anytime Gordon Gekko calls Bud Fox ‘sport’ or whenever anyone calls an investment a ‘dog’?
The current market turmoil has inspired 20th Century Fox to get moving with its sequel. In 2007, a draft script focused on Gekko ‘working on a global scale in the hedge fund era’ on his release from prison for that sentence that sounds so dated now (insider trading). Now the studio has called in rewrite for a new version that apparently aims to reflect ‘a much more tumultuous world,’ according to Variety.
An intriguing detail is that the scriptwriter is Allan Loeb, a licensed stockbroker who once worked at the Chicago Board of Trade. Pending script approval, Michael Douglas will reprise the lead role. Could there please also be a part in there for Benicio del Toro?
