Michael Douglas to Shoot "Liberace" in May

Posted: November 30th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Douglas to Shoot "Liberace" in MaySubmit Comment
A few weeks ago, photos of a very frail Michael Douglas have appeared online, showing the result of the intense chemotherapy he underwent to battle stage four throat cancer. But just recently, new photos have shown a much healthier Douglas. And now comes news that the actor is already preparing for his next role.

Douglas will play the title part in Steven Soderbergh's "Liberace," which starts shooting in May or June and will require special prosthetic work as well as musical training.

"I've got a bunch of tapes of performances," Douglas told THR. "I'm thinking; I'm a blank slate. Everything shows me he was a lovely man; I just want to reconfirm that."

In the movie, Douglas will play the popular 1950s performer, while Matt Damon has been cast as Scott Thorsen, Liberace's assistant and boyfriend who eventually revealed Liberace's sexuality to the public.

"Michael Douglas to Shoot "Liberace" in May"

Didn't Liberace die already? You know, from AIDS? So how can he be killed again? What, is he a zombie or something?

Or did yo mean something else antirely, oh great Alex?

Michael Douglas to Shoot "Liberace" in May ... c'mon Mike, "Wall Street 2 : Money Never Sleeps" wasn't THAT bad. (joke #1)

If he was a zombie, he'd be the most flamboyant one trying to rip a victim's face off to each your brains, than f*ck their rotting corpse in the ass (joke# 3).

Douglas will play the title part in Steven Soderbergh's "Liberace," which starts shooting in May or June and will require special prosthetic work as well as musical training ... and many shots that remind audience members of Tony Scott's overly saturated colors in his cinematography.

I remember watching (on TV) Liberace play 2 classical pieces at the same time, with each hand playing the separate piece. Amazing!

I can seen Douglas hitting this one out of the park, no problem-o. Looking forward to it.

Liberace was an original, flamboyant, true star of Vegas and not the slightest bit modest. He loved his success. A real showman. This should be good.
