Matt Damon ramps up for Michael Douglas kiss in 'Liberace'

Matt Damon and Michael Douglas will kiss in "Liberace" Looks as if that Matt Damon-Michael Douglas smooch we were promised is coming on like a freight train -- with Damon speaking out about his excitement over the "Liberace" lip lock.

In January, Douglas talked about working with Damon for the upcoming biopic, revealing that the two men would be sharing some intimate moments -- nothing beyond the average teen drama, however, just some smooching.

"What kind of Chapstick are you using this week, sweetie?" is how Douglas described flirty text messages he was sending to his costar. And with the film still in pre-production Damon seems ready to kiss and tell.

"It's scripted that there's more than one," the "Adjustment Bureau" actor told E! Online. "I never thought I would get to kiss Michael Douglas."

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luciana Barroso, be warned.

The film -- with a tentative 2013 release -- will be directed by "Ocean's 11" man Steven Soderbergh, who claims it will be one of his last films before he retires from the craft.
