"Money Never Sleeps" is a sequel to the 1987 popular movie "Wall Street". It follows the actions of a Wall Street trader after his release from prison. The unique nature of the movie is in the fact that in this instance life imitates art, namely the original movie dealt with a fictional airline by the name of "Bluestar Airline" which was the company bankrupted by the fictional character of Michael Douglas. In reality a company named "Blue Star Jets" was in fact started in 2001 by real-life businessmen Ricky Sitomer and Todd Rome. The movie "Wall Street" was a favorite of both Sitomer and Rome and was the reason for the naming of their new company, "Blue Star Jets" which charters private jets. During the filming of "Money Never Sleeps", Oliver Stone in fact utilized the private jet charter services of "Blue Star Jets" to ferry the crew on more than 1 occasion from location to location. Usually art imitates life, in this instance it the reverse, a unique situation for sure that makes this movie an interesting one.
