Despite the entertainment world technically knowing for weeks, it has been officially confirmed today that Lindsay Lohan will star as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s new biopic, LIZ AND DICK.
Lohan released a statement expressing her excitement:
“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor…She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.”
Lifetime (I guess they were waiting to see how Lindsay did with court and probation…) plans to begin filming in early June in Los Angeles. Check out the plot below, and let us know if you think this will revive Lindsay’s career, or just confirm her as a has-been.
Plot: For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and actor Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called “the marriage of the century” — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton’s love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture “Cleopatra,” left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
