Josh Brolin is tipped to nab the villain role in “Money Never Sleeps”, Oliver Stone’s follow-up to his classic 1987 feature “Wall Street” says Deadline Hollywood Daily.
Javier Bardem was originally sought for the part but the actor turned it down. Oliver Stone and screenwriter Allan Loeb (“21”) are adding the final touches to the screenplay.
In “Money Never Sleeps”, Brolin would 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.
