Studio:Warner Bros. Pictures
Starring:Michael Douglas, Matt Damon
Steven Soderbergh is in the early stages of developing a biopic about Liberace and has drafted his "Traffic" star Michael Douglas to play the flamboyant pianist. Matt Damon is in discussions to play Scott Thorson, who sued Liberace in 1982 for $113 million in palimony, claiming he was the entertainer's companion for five years. Even though Liberace never wavered from career-long denials that he was gay, Thorson reportedly settled for $95,000 in 1986. Liberace died in 1987 of complications from AIDS at age 67.
