Gordon Gekko, the cinematic personification of 1980s excess who coined the famous line ‘greed is good’, makes an unlikely return as the harbinger of financial meltdown in Oliver Stone’s sequel to Wall Street, which opens this week.

In Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Michael Douglas is cast as an older Gekko who has seen the error of his ways and tries to steer the markets away from impending doom. Set in early 2008 as the global crisis begins to unwind, Gekko is peddling his book, which warns of the dangers.

Several newspapers carry articles on the release of the movie and The Sunday Business Post uses it as a peg to profile Stone.
