LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - English actress Carey Mulligan will play Gordon Gekko's daughter in "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps."

Mulligan joins Michael Douglas (Gekko), Shia LaBeouf and Frank Langella in the sequel to the 1987 film. Josh Brolin is in talks for a role in the movie.

Mulligan's character is romantically linked to LaBeouf's, a young Wall Street broker on his way up.

Allan Loeb wrote the current script.

Mulligan received strong reviews at the Sundance festival for her performance in "An Education," which Sony Pictures Classics is releasing October 9. She has a bit part in "Public Enemies"; "Wall Street 2" is her first major studio role.
