The big-budget followup to the eighties classic Wall Street, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps (clever), is filming scenes inside the uber-trendy Tommy Guns Salon today. Last night, a bare-bones crew was busy setting up the interior for the shoot, all while barbers went about their business. The production will be parked on Ludlow and Rivington from now until 3 am tomorrow morning. Perhaps this will be a scene where Mr. Gekko gets trimmed? A $75 cut would definitely be in his budget…

UPDATE 8:55 am: The area is on lockdown as Michael Douglas is in a barber chair for the scene. Good luck passing through.

UPDATE 3:22 pm: We were told that Ludlow was briefly transformed into London for the scene. Street signs confirm.
