It might be too late for the movie’s protagonist, but can other would-be Bud Foxes be saved? The securities employment law firm of Stuart D. Meissner LLC. thinks so, and is looking to recruit potential whistleblowers by launching SECSnitch.com.
In a bit of life imitating (or abetting) art, the site is being launched along with the release of Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street – Money Never Sleeps” starring Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf, which is the sequel to Stone’s critical and commercial hit “Wall Street” from 1987.
Along with the site, a new advertisement will be aired in theatres, targeting securities industry employees. LaBeouf plays the role of Jacob Moore, who lives in an apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea district. The advertisement will be first shown on the film’s release date on Friday in Chelsea and at the renowned Ziegfeld Theatre in the Broadway district in Manhattan.
The advertisement will be set to music similar to the theme song from NBC’s “Law and Order.” The showing of the SECSnitch.com advertisement will roll out to other theatres in other areas of New York commencing on October 8.
