With just about a month until the sequel to Wall Street starts filming, Javier Bardem dropped out. The actor's rep said that he has had five or six other offers and was going to take one of them. It must have been a really big offer or he hated Oliver Stone. I guess he could have not liked the idea of working with Michael Douglas or Shia LaBeouf who are set to star in the movie as well.
This is actually one sequel I am excited to see. I love the original Wall Street but it is dated and so I really don't have a problem with revisiting Gordon Gekko and seeing what he has turned into or if he has changed. I have to admit that I really wanted Javier in the movie and now I am worried he found something he didn't like in it or the direction in which it was headed.
