Javier Bardem cast as villain in 'Wall Street 2'

Javier Bardem has joined the cast of the upcoming Wall Street 2 as hedge fund manager Bretton Woods. Oliver Stone will be back to direct the sequel, along with Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko, and Shia LaBeouf has a new role in the film. Fox has scheduled a release for February 2010 to capitalize on the current clusterfuck of doom global financial crisis. Apparently it only took Gordon Gekko nearly two decades to learn that greed probably isn't good:

The story in Wall Street 2 will span from June 2008 to the federal bailout in September. "We wanted to see some perspective in the same way that the original dealt with insider trading." This is certainly moving along swiftly and I think Bardem is a great choice, especially given how worldly Wall Street has become. The only other tidbit is that in the beginning when Gekko gets out of prison, he believes that the "end is coming." [FirstShowing]
