CASTING COUCH

Douglas, LaBeouf Do Wall Street 2

Hollywood’s catching on: What could be timelier than a follow-up to the classic film Wall Street, which documented all things greedy and excessive in the ’80s? Michael Douglas is slipping back into his Oscar-winning role as “corporate raider” Gordon Gekko, who returns to the real world after a prison stint and discovers—oh, no!—the economy has taken a nosedive. Transformers and Indiana Jones action wunderkind Shia LeBeouf is in talks to play a young (likely smart-mouthed) trader, and the film will take place 20 years after the original. Douglas, for one, appears gung-ho about the role, saying, “I think it’s time to take another hard look at trading and the economy and what went wrong in the last few years.” Apparently, greed is good … again.
