The first images from Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh's upcoming Liberace bio pic for HBO, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, starring Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson, have just been released. Check them out below!

Executive produced by Weintraub and produced by Gregory Jacobs ("Contagion," "The Informant!") and Susan Ekins ("Ocean's Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen," "The Karate Kid" series), BEHIND THE CANDELABRA takes a behind-the-scenes look at the tempestuous relationship between legendary entertainer Liberace and Scott Thorson, his younger live-in lover. Directed by Soderbergh from a script by Oscar(R) nominee Richard LaGravenese ("Water for Elephants," "The Fisher King"), the film stars Douglas as Liberace and Damon as Thorson.

"This is a story that's going to surprise a lot of people," said Amato. "It's funny, heartbreaking and always fascinating, and we are delighted that Jerry and Steven brought the film to HBO. With Steven at the helm, directing such accomplished actors as Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, this is a dream project for us."
