No bailout here: Fox moves on 'Wall St.' sequel


With the nation watching the seesawing stock market, Fox is ready to revisit whether 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 1 rewrite.

The logline is being kept under wraps, though it will feature the character of Gordon Gekko, the corporate raider character played 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." (partialdiff)
