Oliver Stone: Hollywood doesn't address current issues
The Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps director told Digital Spy that there aren't enough opportunities to make big budget films examining the economic and social climate.
Part of the reason for this is because such movies are often difficult to make.
"I'm not doing a documentary, it's a personal story, it's tough stuff to do. Financial movies aren't going to be done very much by Hollywood because there's no guns and no action in it," he claimed.
The financial language used can also be difficult for audiences to understand when it comes to films dealing with the economy, Stone added.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which was released in the UK on October 6th, stars Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan and Susan Sarandon.
The film focuses on a young Wall Street trader in the run up to the economic downturn.
