Our first official look at the cast of the upcoming Wall Street sequel Money Never Sleeps has appeared online and it’s thanks to the folks at Vanity Fair. The magazine that’s known for its breathtaking photos under the creative direction of photographer Annie Leibovitz. The whole cast showed up for the shoot, including Satan’s spawn Gordon Gekko aka Michael Douglas…
The cast of Money Never Sleeps is led by Shia Labeouf, and the film’s story will mimic some of the original content from the first movie. Labeouf’s character is an up and coming trader on Wall Street who gets taught the hard lessons of the business. In the midst of it he unites with the infamous Gordon Gekko to save the financial community from the oncoming economic collapse. If that’s not enough for you, he also gets involved with Gekko’s daughter and tries to find out who’s responsible for the death of his former mentor.
The above photo features Josh Brolin, director Oliver Stone, Douglas, Labeouf and Golden Globe nominee Carey Mulligan. The film is slated to hit theaters on April 23, 2010, so get ready for Shia to trade in Sam Witwicky’s ‘Strokes T-shirt for a couple of costum made suits.
Here’s another photo from the Vanity Fair issue that features a solo shot of a newly reformed Gekko.
