Soon to be seen in the issue oriented PROMISED LAND as a gas company huckster trying to sell an impoverished rural community on the benefits of fracking, Academy Award-winning actor MATT DAMON is taking a walk on the wild side in his next film, a behind-the-scenes look at the life of iconic entertainer LIBERACE. A chronicle of the flamboyant pianist’s relationship with paid companion Scott Thorson, the film is said to delve into the details of their life together and its aftermath. Directed by STEVEN SODERBERGH, the cast is headed by MICHAEL DOUGLAS as LIBERACE and DAMON as SCOTT THORSON.
We spoke with MATT DAMON a few days ago about his upcoming films and he indicates that BEHIND THE CANDELABRA might be more than just another Hollywood biopic.
PROMISED LAND opens in limited release 12/28
BEHIND THE CANDELABRA is slated to air on HBO in May of next year
