Thompson on Hollywood
It's not official yet, but it looks pretty sure that Oliver Stone will finally be making his Cannes debut, with the sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, starring Michael Douglas 23 years after his first turn as Gordon Gekko, and Carey Mulligan as his daughter. Shia LaBeouf and W star Josh Brolin also star. It's long overdue, if you ask me. Oliver Stone is an auteur in my book, even if the Cannes selectors hasn't deemed him one of their elite so far.

Thompson on Hollywood

Stone has been turned down in the past, with U-Turn and Natural Born Killers. But Twentieth Century Fox is not going for a competition slot. (Universal nailed down the May 12 opener for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood). The studio pushed back Wall Street from April 23 to September 24. The fest runs through May 23.

Other likely Hollywood entrants are Cannes perennial Woody Allen's latest, You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger, starring Anthony Hopkins, Brolin, Naomi Watts and Antonio Banderas (a SPC release) and Terrence Malick's long-in-the-works Tree of Life. Word is that the Brad Pitt-starrer is in fact finished, but that River Road and Apparition chief Bill Pohlad is not putting pressure on Malick to deliver in time for Cannes. If he shows it to them, I'm sure they will be eager to take it.
