Wall Street 2 Delayed

From the BBC.

Oliver Stone’s sequel to 1987 hit Wall Street will not be in cinemas for another six months after film studio bosses pushed back the release date.

Money Never Sleeps was scheduled to open on 23 April in the UK and US, but has now been held until 24 September.

It is hoped the film will instead have a gala screening at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The movie sees Michael Douglas reprise his Oscar-winning role as ruthless stockbroker Gordon Gekko.

Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf also stars in the film, alongside Josh Brolin and Oscar-nominated actress Carey Mulligan who plays Gekko’s daughter.

According to Variety, 20th Century Fox bosses said the film was better suited for an autumn than summer release, with the delay helping to avoid the crowded summer box office months.

It would also benefit from a global promotional push following the Cannes Film Festival and gives Stone extra time to polish the film.

Stone’s film picks up 23 years after his first one left off and sees Gekko, who has just been released from prison, try to warn Wall Street of the impending financial collapse.
