Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated. Looking to repair his damaged relationship with his daughter (Carey Mulligan), Gekko forms an alliance with her fiancé Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), and Jacob begins to see him as a father figure. But Jacob learns the hard way that Gekko – still a master manipulator and player – is after something very different from redemption.
I was never really a fan of the first film so I am not sure if I like the look of this or not.

Vanity Fair have a preview of some lovely photos by the incredible Annie Leibovitz for Oliver Stone’s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
First Showing have an update on the plot – Gekko (Michael Douglas) meets up with the “hungry young hedge-funder” Jake Moore (Shia LaBeouf) who is also dating Gekko’s estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan – Doctor Who, An Education). Jake believes that his boss (Josh Brolin) somehow had a hand in the death of Jake’s mentor and they go after revenge.

A few days ago news surfaced that Michael Douglas, Dennis Quaid, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Hunger”) had all joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s spy thriller, Knockout. That’s the one that stars Mixed Martial Arts champion Gina Carano in the lead.
Now The Playlist have some more casting news. Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe, Public Enemies, Fighting, Step Up) has joined the as one of the elite specialists on Carano’s team named Aaron — a military gearhead-type who’s sent to try and bring her back in once she’s been double-crossed and gone rogue; trying to figure out who exactly is setting her up. However, this will supposedly be just a small role.
Antonio Banderas (Desperado) is also in talks to join the cast playing the head of a Black-ops European unit.
It also turns out that Dennis Quaid will play Carano’s father.
Long time Soderberg collaborator, David Holmes will be writing the score for the film.
Soderbergh is currently location scouting and will now be primarily shot in Barcelona, Dublin and New Mexico. The picture is set to start shooting in February and Lionsgate hopes to have the film in theaters for August.
This sounds like it could be an excellent action film, full of intrigue, double crossing and lots of fighting. Plus Soderbergh should bring something quite different to the look of an action film.
Definitely one to keep an eye on.

Back in September last year Steven Soderbergh said he would next direct Knockout, a spy thriller marking the screen starring debut of Gina Carano, the mixed martial arts circuit fighter
Now news is out from various sources of who else will be starring in the film and there are some mightly big names there.
Michael Fassbender (Fish Tank, Inglourious Basterds, Hunger) is down to play an MI6 operative that meets up with the lead character. In addition Ewan McGregor, Dennis Quaid and Michael Douglas are also joining up.
The plot has also changed a little and is now a revenge story where Mallory Kane (Carano), now from a solid background and was raised around military honor and academia, is now a black ops soldier. She is double crossed by someone on her own team and must uncover who set her up to take the fall for a job gone wrong, leaving blood on her hands.
The new cast members surrounding Carano will all be a part of her special forces team. Douglas will play a government figure. Fassbender and another unnamed actor play members of her commando spy unit and McGregor will be playing a man who runs a Blackwater-type private military company that Carano’s character is employed with. No word on what character Dennis Quaid will be playing.
Written by Lem Dobbs. The movie is scheduled to go before cameras in February in several locations around the world.
Shaping up to be a great cast and possibly a great movie. All depends on how well Carano can act.
