A personal development for Michael Douglas will not have any affect on his upcoming film.

Earlier this week, the Academy Award-winning actor announced he will be receiving treatment for a tumor discovered in his throat. Although very little was revealed about his diagnosis, it was revealed that Douglas will undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.

“I am very optimistic,” the 65-year-old said in a statement.

The health news comes just weeks before the Michael’s latest film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, is set to debut. While it’s not known how Douglas’ voice might be impacted, if at all, the studio says things will go on as scheduled. Universal also expects Michael - who won an Oscar for his first portrayal of Gordon Gekko - to be able to promote the film.

This, unfortunately, is not the only issue Michael has had to deal with off-camera in the past year. Back in April, his son was sentenced to five years in prison for drug dealing. His ex-wife, Diandra, is also suing Michael for a share of his earnings from the sequel.

Money Never Sleeps opens on September 24.
