Money never sleeps – but Michael Douglas’ in-laws need a place to.

The star of “Wall Street” was spotted checking out rental units at the Moinian Group’s Atelier condo building in Midtown Monday, sources told The Real Deal. But Allen Burry, a publicist for the Hollywood heavyweight, said the apartment was not for Douglas but for the parents of his wife, Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Welsh stunner’s parents, David and Patricia Jones, want to spend more time in New York, Burry said.

No word yet on whether the Atelier was the right fit.

Douglas is just the latest in a long line of celebs to eye homes at the luxury condo building, which is a longtime favorite of celebrities who need a short-term home short-term while treading the boards on Broadway. Lindsay Lohan, Brendan Fraser and Mekhi Phifer have all rented at the property.

Dan Neiditch, president of River 2 River Realty, the firm handling rentals and sales for the building, declined to comment. Some of the condos are available to rent, and range in price from around $2,800 to $20,000 a month.

The Atelier has a 24-hour doorman, an indoor pool, a 12,000-square-foot health club, a rooftop lounge, basketball court, tennis court and a movie theater. The building’s board recently filed suit against developer the Moinian Group over access to some of the amenities.

Douglas and Zeta-Jones’ marriage was widely rumored to be on the rocks a couple of years ago but now appears to be back on track. The couple recently posted several pictures on social media of their vacation to Aspen, where they first got engaged.
