Hollywood's Next Villain: Wall Street
We wrote last week how tickled pink we are about the possible return of Gordon Gekko in a "Wall Street" sequel being fast-tracked by 20th Century Fox.
Well, Hollywood knows a bandwagon when it sees one.
NBC's "Law & Order" is writing episodes that center on financial themes, the Associated press reports, and doubtless includes bad guys in good suits.
NBC also is developing a reality show called "Outrageous Behavior," which is billed as a battle of the sexes set on Wall Street.
Warner Bros. is working on a film called "Confessions Of A Wall Street Shoeshine Boy," set for release next year, based on the comedy of manners novel of the same name, in which an insider trading scandal is uncovered.
Also in development is a movie version of "The Wolf of Wall Street," the memoir of banned (and jailed) securities trader Jordan Belfort.
Question: Who plays Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson? I'm suggesting this guy.
