WALL STREET MONEY NEVER SLEEPS directed by Oliver Stone is a sequel to the 1987 film WALL STREET. Michael Douglas reprises his Academy Award-winning role of Gordon Gekko starring with Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan and Frank Langella. Set in New York City as the global economy is on the brink of disaster. This instalment promises a 'ripped from the headlines' plot, with Gekko teaching ambitious young investment banker Jacob Moore the ins and outs of criminal investments. Gekki emerges from prison to find that his daughter, Winnie, (Carey Mulligan) prefers to remain estranged, and that his former WALL STREET cohorts are still raking in the cash. Flash-forward to 2008, and Winnie is dating a proprietary trader named Jake Moore (LaBeouf), who expresses a passion for green energy while working for his mentor Louis Zabel (Frank Langella), of Keller Zabel Investments. Despite heading up one of the most prominent investment firms in the country, Louis Zabel is forced to personally fight for the future of Keller Zabel before the Federal Reserve after the company's stock takes a hit due to persistent rumours that it's being dragged down by debt. Denied a bailout from the government, Keller Zabel soon falls victim to a hostile takeover lead by powerful investment bank partner Bretton James (Josh Brolin), of Churchill Schwartz. His job on the line and his mentor out of the picture, Jake discovers that Gordon Gekko is out promoting his new book "Is Greed Good?" and decides to attend a lecture being given by the author at Fordham University. According to Gekko, greed is now sanctioned by the government, and the U.S. economy is on the verge of collapse as a direct result of leveraged debt and wild conjecture. When Jake goes behind Winnie's back to try and repair her relationship with her father, Gekko reveals his compelling theories on the likely reasons for Zabel's downfall. Later, as Jake begins plotting to avenge his mentor, Gekko starts to reveal his true colours.
