A sequel to classic 1987 film Wall Street is to be made with Michael Douglas returning as money-crazed mogul Gordon Gekko, according to reports.
Michael Douglas won best actor at the Oscars for his role
Edward R Pressman, who produced the original, told the New York Times he had signed to develop a sequel called Money Never Sleeps.
The title comes from one of Gekko's memorable lines, which also famously included: "Greed is good."
The character came to represent the worst corporate excesses of the 1980s.
Mr Pressman told the New York Times that Gekko went to jail at the end of the first film - but would not give details of the sequel's plot.
Original director Oliver Stone has turned down the opportunity to make the follow-up, the paper said.
Charlie Sheen co-starred in the original, but it was Douglas who won most plaudits, being named best actor at the 1988 Oscars for his role.
Gordon Gekko's words of wisdom:
- "Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit."
- "No feelings. You don't win 'em all, you don't love 'em all, you keep on fighting and if you need a friend, get a dog."
- "We make the rules - the news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the cost of a paper clip... you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy are you? It's the free market."
- "Lunch? Are you joking? Lunch is for wimps."
