Wall Street 2's cinema release has been postponed until September, it has been announced.

Oliver Stone's highly anticipated sequel, in which Michael Douglas reprises his role as Gordan Gekko, was due for release on April 23.

But Fox has now pushed back the date of the film, co-starring Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan and Josh Brolin, to September 24 to avoid the crowded summer box office months.

Variety speculates that the studio is hoping Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps will be included in the Cannes Film Festival in May, helping to give the film an international profile when it launches.

The sequel to the 1980s classic is set in 2008 and sees Gekko, who has just been released from prison, try to warn Wall Street of the impending financial collapse.

No-one listens to him because he's considered a crook, so Gekko tries to reconcile with his daughter, played by Carey.

He attempts to help his daughter's fiance, a young stock broker (Shia) whose mother has been murdered, exact revenge on the hedge fund manager responsible for the crime.
