And they've been divorced for almost a decade!
Michael Douglas' ex, Diandra, filed a lawsuit against her former husband earlier this month claiming that she is entitled to half of his earnings from Wall Street 2.
Diandra received about $45 million in the divorce, but she claims that part of the deal was that she was entitled to 50 percent of money from his films during their time together - including residuals, merchandising, ancillary rights and spinoffs.
"He doesn't want her to be an albatross around his neck forever," Michael's lawyer, Marilyn Chinitz, told the judge.
"It's the same character, the same title, just years later," added Diandra's attorney.
Chinitz is arguing that a sequel is not a spinoff and she has no right to the money.
"They're not the same thing," she said.
The judge did agree that there was a difference between a spinoff and sequel, but will not decide the issue until he figures out whether the case should be tried in NYC or sent to California, where the two divorced.
