Twentieth Century Fox execs today clarified a few of my details about Wall Street 2. Javier Bardem is not onboard yet, but “he is who we want” to play the stock-shorting hedge fund manager set up in the story as the villain. Oliver Stone hasn’t met with him yet, and the studio hasn’t negotiated his deal yet. The start date is now at the end of August, not August 10th. And, as of right now, there is no release date yet scheduled, just contemplated. Otherwise, spot on. (See my previous: Hedge Fund Is Villain In Oliver Stone’s ‘Wall Street 2’)
