Michael Douglas is determined to walk the red carpet at next week’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps premiere, despite undergoing ravaging cancer treatment.
The acting icon is currently receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatment for throat cancer following his diagnosis revelation last month.

His highly-anticipated return as ruthless bank boss Gordon Gekko is to be unveiled at the New York screening on 20 September, but speculation has been rife the star will be too drained to attend.

But his publicist Allen Burry insists Douglas will make every effort to be there.

The rep tells Popeater.com, “That’s the plan right now (to be at the premiere). But we’re literally going day-to-day as to know how much he can do.

“He would like to attend the premiere and show his support for the movie. He knows that’s part of the job and he’s proud of the movie.”
