The 10 Best Quotes From Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps

michael douglas and donald trump wall street 2

This past spring we got a copy of the script for the upcoming Oliver Stone flick, Money Never Sleeps (aka Wall Street 2).

Since then, we’ve heard reports and seen movie previews of scenes that are definitely not in the script.

Stone admits that he made a lot of changes to the movie, most because Wall Streeters told him to, others, like Donald Trump’s, because they were “too distracting.”

As soon as we see the movie, we’ll tell you exactly what the changes were. But in the meantime, here are some of our favourite Wall Street 2 quotes from the script, so you can watch out for changes yourself.
