Michael Douglas is set to play Liberace in a biopic of the flamboyant Polish-Italian pianist.
Steven Soderbergh is busy developing the project, and has drafted in Richard LaGravanese to write the script.
Soderbergh also wants Matt Damon to play Scott Thorson, who sued Liberace for palimony in 1982, claiming the pair was lovers.
Liberace - real name Wladziu Valentino Liberace - was a huge star in the 1950s and 60s, famous for his showmanship and glittery suits.
He repeatedly refused to acknowledge his homosexuality, right up until his death from AIDS in 1987, at the age of 67 - even successfully suing a British tabloid for suggesting he was gay.
