‘Money Never Sleeps’ to close Zurich

Stone and Pressman to attend territory preem

BERLIN — Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” has been selected as the Zurich Film Festival’s closing night film.

Stone and producer Edward Pressman will attend the German-language premiere Oct. 3. Michael Douglas, who is being feted at this year’s fest with the Golden Icon award, was to attend but bowed out last week after being diagnosed with cancer. As previously reported, Danny DeVito will be on hand to accept the prize on Douglas’ behalf (Daily Variety, Aug. 23).

It won’t be the first time Stone and Pressman attend the Zurich fest.

Stone was honored in 2007 with the “A Tribute to …” kudo while Pressman chaired the 2006 jury.

“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” follows Douglas’ character Gordon Gekko from Stone’s original 1987 film “Wall Street” as he is released from prison and gets back into the money game. Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, Susan Sarandon and Frank Langella co-star.

The fest will also present a special screening of the original “Wall Street.” “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” hits Swiss and German cinemas Oct. 21.

The Zurich Film Festival runs Sept. 25-Oct. 3.
