Oliver Stone talks ‘Wall Street 2’ on Real Time

Posted by · 11:57 am · June 28th, 2009

Bill Maher is taking a brief mid-season break from live “Real Time” shows for the next couple of weeks.  Friday night’s show, when not an awkward schmooze fest on some of his guests’ part, made for a delightful three-part one-on-one discussion.  The guests were Cameron Diaz, Oliver Stone and Billy Bob Thornton, but as you’d imagine, the most fascinating discussion was the Stone segment.

The director talked about religion, “the death of journalism” regarding the current administration’s decision to withhold images from Abu Ghraib, and, most applicable to what we do here, the forthcoming sequel to his 1987 film “Wall Street.”  Stone says he plans to start filming in August for an early 2010 release.  The “Wall Street” talk begins around the 7:00 minute mark:

    Maher’s show which was taped and not live was a really good piece of television. Stone, Cameron Diaz and Billy Bob Thorton were all solid guests. Maher is a terrific interviewer and I consider his show must see viewing. Its interesting how Micheal Jackson’s name came up(again it was taped before his death).

    Did I not make it clear that it wasn’t live in the copy there?

    Anyway, I thought the same thing when he brought up Jackson with Billy Bob. Oops.

    You did, I just mentioned it again when I brought up the Micheal Jackson thing as reference to my statement.

    Oliver Stone was kissing Mahrer’s ass the whole time.

    Does anyone know what film Billy Bob Thornton referred to hating when filming in NYC “5 or 6 years ago”?
