Did Prison Mellow Gordon Gekko?

So much so that he began practicing yoga regularly, cut out red meat and made up with his sworn enemies who he previously vowed to skull fuck, after ripping said enemy's eyeballs out do battle with? If the filmmakers are intent on referencing Dan Loeb's character arc with any sort of accuracy, the answer is maybe! Apparently back when the Wall Street sequel was first being discussed (circa 2007), Michael Douglas and then-writer Stephen Schiff took some lunch meetings with the Third Point founder who, it has been suggested, once exhibited similar qualities to the Gekko. Granted, the consultation took place a while ago at this point, but that doesn't mean Mikey wasn't sufficiently inspired. We'll be looking out for references to the Jewish Rambo when this thing finally comes out.
