According to Deadline Hollywood Josh Brolin is going to be offered the role of the villain in Oliver Stones Wall Street Sequel. The role is a stock-shortage hedge fund manager. The role was originally offered to Javier Bardem, and he obviously turned it down if they are going to Brolin now. Wouldn't that be weird knowing you were someone's second choice? But, I guess it's cool because Stone and Brolin have talked about the screenplay.
Apparently the script for the film is locked and loaded, and if he takes the role he will join Michael Douglas who is reprising his role from the first film as Gordon Gekko, and Shia Leboeuf has been cast as well.
Shia will play a young Wall Street trader who's engaged to be married to Gekko's estranged daughter. Shia wants to be a major player, but his mentor unexpectedly kills himself, and Shia thinks a stock-shorting worldwide hedge fund manager is responsible. Shia seeks revenge on this villain.
Brolin is a great actor, and I'm sure he will do a fantastic job if he takes the role.
