Production is underway on Steven Soderbergh‘s honest-it’s-my-last-movie-guv, Behind the Candelabra. It’s an adaptation of Scott Thorson‘s book about his years living with Liberace.
Michael Douglas is playing Liberace, and Matt Damon is playing Thorson, and a pair of nice wigs are playing their hairdos.
Thanks to E for that image.
The story of this relationship ended with Thorson suing for palimony just before AIDs claimed Liberace’s life in 1987. It’s a big finish, but seeing as Soderbergh’s film, and Richard LaGravenese are adapting a book by Thorson, I don’t know if we’ll be seeing it on the screen.
Behind the Candelabra is to screen on HBO, presumably at some point in 2013.
