Steven Soderbergh has been never less than adventurous over his career, and so there is something quite fitting about the director taking on the story of the popular and flamboyant performer Liberace for his final film before he steps away from the movie world and into a hiatus. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon have long been attached in the lead roles, and with the film gearing up to shoot this summer, Soderbergh has begun assembling his cast with three more names boarding the film.

While Steven Soderbergh has never been busier -- "Contagion" hit theaters last month, "Magic Mike" is now shooting and "Haywire" will hit theaters in early 2012 -- he's gained even more attention since reports of his impending hiatus/retirement. But don't worry, he's not going anywhere anytime soon, as the man still has lots to do. Of course, there is the Warner Bros. tentpole "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." in development, but while that one is still looking for a leading man after George Clooney had to bow out, Soderbergh's long-gestating Liberace pic "Behind The Candelabra" is moving forward.
