Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are going to get quite close for a forthcoming Steven Soderbergh film.

Soderbergh's upcoming biopic (due for release in 2011) about flamboyant singer Liberace will cast Douglas as the larger-than-life, sequin-bedecked figure and Batman villain who died of AIDS in 1987. The story will be told from the point of view of his companion and alleged lover Scott Thorson, played by Damon, who was thirty years Liberace's junior.
