Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor for new biopic 'Liz and Dick'
It seems Lindsay Lohan is turning over a new leaf in her life with a brand new television movie in the pipeline. For her comeback role the troubled starlet will play Elizabeth Taylor in a biopic titled, Liz and Dick. The made-for-TV film is set to air on the Lifetime channel in the US later this year.
Currently in production, the flick stars Lohan alongside New Zealand actor Grant Bowler who plays Richard Burton. With filming taking place in LA, Lohan and Bowler recently recreated the controversial photo of Liz and Dick taken in 1962 when the pair were snapped by the paparazzi on a yacht ff the coast of Ichia in the Bay of Naples, Italy. At the time it sparked much discussion as both Taylor and Burton were married at the time, only not to each other.
With as many as 66 outfits rumoured for her role, Li-Lo will sport many a Sixties outfit and has dyed her hair from red to Liz Taylor's famous dark locks. It seems only fitting that Lohan portray Taylor who was also no stranger to scandal herself. She met Burton while filming Cleopatra in 1962. The turbulent couple had an on-and-off romance for years and went on to become one of the world's greatest love affairs of the 20th century. They married for the first time from 1964 to 1974 before going their separate ways. In 1975 they got hitched for a second time before filing for divorce again the following year.
