Is Greed Still Good?

I recently read that there are plans for Michael Douglas to revive Gordon Gekko, his Oscar-winning character from the 1987 film Wall Street. Tentatively titled "Money Never Sleeps", the sequel will be without the services of the original film's director (Oliver Stone) and Charlie Sheen (Gekko's protege Bud Fox in the first movie).

Early this morning, I caught "Wall Street" on the Fox Movie Channel. It had been years since I had seen it, so I forgot that Terence "Kneel Before Zod" Stamp, Catwoman wannabe Sean Young, and John C. McGinley (Perry Cox on the vastly underrated Scrubs) had supporting roles. Come to think of it, John C. was practically an Oliver Stone regular, because he also appeared in "Platoon", "Talk Radio", and "Any Given Sunday". I don't know if the public is exactly clamoring for a sequel, but it might be interesting to see what became of Gordo... because the ending of Wall Street did leave things open in regards to his fate.
