Variety reports that "Behind the Candelabra" will be directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film will also feature screen star Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, Liberace's lover.

The late pianist, a Las Vegas staple, was known as much for his piano stylings as he was for his glittering costumes, jewelry and candelabra.
