Javier Bardem has dropped out of Oliver Stone’s upcoming “Wall Street” sequel due to scheduling difficulties and other offers says Forbes.
In “Money Never Sleeps”, Bardem was being sought to play a villainous hedge fund manager. Shia LaBeouf plays a young trader who seeks revenge with advice from his fiancee’s dad – Michael Douglas’ Gordon Gekko character.
A potential replacement is not yet locked. Bardem is still committed to the Julia Roberts romancer “Eat, Pray, Love”.
