Damon Talks Liberace Biopic Status

Talking with The Las Vegas Sun, actor Matt Damon says the Steven Soderbergh-helmed Liberace biopic is still on despite a delay year-long delay.

The project was originally slated to shoot this Summer and then delayed to early next year. Now, Damon says “Yeah, it’s going to happen. We’re going to do it next summer.” He’s still excited by the project as well, saying “Richard LaGravenese has written a really great script and, you know, hopefully it will be a really great movie. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be.”

Most of the production will be shot in Los Angeles with a few scenes to be shot in Las Vegas. One of the big reasons for the delay was Soderbergh’s “Contagion” thriller has been moved forward and kicks off early this Fall. Damon has a small role in that.
