Matt Damon - Matt Damon Ready For Douglas Kiss

Matt Damon can't wait to lock lips with Michael Douglas in their new movie.

The 'Adjustment Bureau' star will play the lover of Michael's flamboyant gay pianist Liberace in the biopic of the same name and Matt is delighted the script calls for more than one smooch between the pair.

He told E!: "It's scripted that there's more than one. I never thought I would get to kiss Michael Douglas!"

Michael - who revealed in January he is in remission for stage four throat cancer - is equally enthusiastic about the project and revealed he had been teasing Matt about their love scenes.

He said: "I'm just going to get really comfortable so it's not a caricature. Matt Damon's going to be my younger lover. God bless Matt.

I saw Matt and I was teasing him. I was saying, 'Bring a lot of ChapStick, babe.' "

The film will be helmed by Steven Soderbergh - who recently announced his retirement from directing - and Matt doesn't think he will reconsider his decision.

He explained: "I've had a lot of conversations with him about it and he is serious about it. He says that this is last one he's going to do."

Michael has two children, Dylan, 10, and seven-year-old Carys, with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, while Matt raises 12-year-old stepdaughter Alexia and daughters Isabella, four, Gia, two, and four-month-old Stella with his spouse Luciana.
