Allen's You will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, starring Anthony Hopkins and Naomi Watts, and Stone's Wall Street sequel, called Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, will make their debut at the prestigious event. Money Never Sleeps stars Carey Mulligan and Charlie Sheen and is set as the global economy teeters on the brink of recession.
Mike Leigh's Another Year and Liman's political drama Fair Game are among the 16 movies screening in competition, alongside Alejandro Gonzales Innaritu's Biutiful and Tournée from French actor Mathieu Amalric.
Leigh previously scooped the top Cannes prize, winning the prestigious Palm d'Or for 1996's Secrets & Lies.
Russell Crowe blockbuster Robin Hood will screen out of competition as the opening night film, while Hideo Nakata's Chatroom and Stephen Frears's graphic novel adaptation Tamara Drewe will also premiere at the event.
