Frank Langella set for ‘Wall Street 2’

Actor joins LaBeouf, Douglas in Stone sequel

Frank Langella will join the cast of “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,” the Oliver Stone-directed sequel for 20th Century Fox.

Shia LaBeouf stars with Michael Douglas, who’ll reprise his Gordon Gekko role. Josh Brolin is reportedly circling a part in the Allan Loeb-scripted drama as well.

Langella is in talks to play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor’s fate plays a major part in the film’s plot.

It’s Langella’s first role since his Oscar-nominated turn as Richard Nixon in “Frost/Nixon” in 2008.

He will next be seen starring with Cameron Diaz and James Marsden in Richard Kelly-directed thriller “The Box” and Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst.

WME reps Langella. Stone and Edward R. Pressman are producing with Eric Kopeloff.
