August cast and filmmakers will be ringing The Closing Bell® at the NYSE on Friday, July 11th, 2008 at 4:00PM EST.  Josh Harnett will ring the bell while surrounded by cast and producers from 57th & Irving Productions, Periscope, and Original Media. The film, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival will be released on July 11th at the Village East theater by distributor First Look Studios.

AUGUST follows Tom Sterling (Josh Hartnett) as an aggressive, young dotcom entrepreneur who fights to keep his start-up company afloat.   Tom finds himself on a personal and professional downward spiral as he struggles to reunite with girlfriend, Sarah (Naomie Harris), regain control of his company from his investor Ogilvie (David Bowie), and deal with age-old family wounds with his father, David (Rip Torn) and his brother Joshua (Adam Scott).  

The film, which was directed by Austin Chick (XX/XY), also showcases stellar performances from Emmanuelle Chriqui and Robin Tunney.  The star-studded cast and producers look forward to the honor of ringing The Closing Bell® this Friday.  “What better setting could we pick to ring in the release of August than the NYSE,” asked 57th & Irving, president, Patrick Morris. “There will be plenty of traders on the floor that day who will remember late summer 2001 very well and maybe recalling that dark time in the market will afford us some perspective on our financial current state.”
