Thesp re-teams with Damon, Soderbergh for 'Behind the Candelabra'
Gregory Jacobs and Susan Ekins will produce, while Jerry Weintraub will exec produce. After debuting on HBO, “Candelabra” will get a theatrical release outside the U.S. and Canada. Plan is for HBO Enterprises to sell the pic to independent distributors. Production is set to begin this summer. Bakula, who recently starred on TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age,” just wrapped the last episodes of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.” Thesp also stars alongside Nikki Reed and Gina Rodriguez in Youssef Delara and Victor Teran’s psychological thriller “Snap.” Bakula is repped by ICM Partners.
