Oliver Stone wants 'Wall Street 2' to premiere at Cannes
One of the more interesting aspects of Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" moving its release date from April 23 to Sept. 24 earlier this week was the fact the filmmakers are hoping to get the film into this May's Cannes Film Festival.
Premiering the "Wall Street" follow up at arguably the world's most important cinema showcase is a gutsy move for all involved. If the film receives mixed or even negative reviews it will be a four-month marketing hurdle for distributor 20th Century Fox to overcome for wider audiences. If the film gets strong or positive reviews, it could position "Money Never Sleeps" as a key award season player in the fall. And, most likely, the film would then find itself having its North American premiere at the Oscar-friendly Toronto Film Festival. Three of this year's Best Picture nominees, "Precious," "An Education" and "A Single Man" all screened at Toronto. Another, "Inglourious Basterds," debuted at Cannes.
"Money Never Sleep" stars Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, Josh Brolin and features Michael Douglas reprising his Academy Award-winning role of Gordon "Greed is good" Gekko.
