Steven Soderbergh developing a Liberace biopic

September 24, 2008  |  1:37pm
Steven Soderbergh has been hard at work on a bold, daring biopic that dares to go where other directors fear to tread. No, we're not talking about his movie Che, because plenty of other people have and likely will create films centered on Mr. Guevara. Soderbergh's truly revolutionary biopic is on Liberace.

Variety announced recently that Soderbergh's seriously developing this project. Not only that, but while it is planned to be low-budget, it's still going to be made with Warner Bros. Michael Douglas is planned as the lead while Matt Damon is in talks to play his supposed partner Scott Thorson. While the project is a long way from completion, it promises to be Soderbergh's strangest feature in at least, well, two or three years.
