Scripts are circulating in advance of the global indie market for Steven Soderbergh's Liberace, with Michael Douglas set to star as the flamboyant Vegas pianist, and Matt Damon as his partner; Robert Redford's The Conspirator, a post-Civil War drama set inside a nest of Lincoln assassination plotters, starring James McAvoy, Robin Wright Penn, Kevin Kline and Danny Huston; and Irish writer-director Jim Sheridan's psychological thriller Dream House, starring Daniel Craig.
