Fox moves on 'Wall St.' sequel

Allan Loeb to write 'Money Never Sleeps'

With the nation keeping an eye on the see-sawing stock market, Fox is ready to revisit if greed is indeed good by pushing anew with its "Wall Street" sequel, titled "Money Never Sleeps."

Allan Loeb has been tapped to write the script in what is being described as a page one rewrite.

The logline is being kept under wraps, though it will feature the character of Gordon Gekko, the corporate raider character immortalized by Michael Douglas in the 1987 Oliver Stone film.

Douglas, who won an Oscar for the role, is interested in reprising the character but will make his decision of whether to return based on the script.

Ed Pressman, who produced the original, is producing the sequel.

Loeb, repped by CAA, wrote "Things We Lost in the Fire" and "21" and created the TV show "New Amsterdam."
