Actress Lindsay Lohan is reportedly in talks to play a young Dame Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming movie. Bosses at America's Lifetime network have been working on a film tentatively titled Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story.
Producer Larry Thompson is overseeing the project since may last year and Lohan, 25, has been discussing the lead role with the heads, reports hollywoodreporter.com.The film will reportedly focus on the love affair between Taylor and Richard Burton. The celebrity couple split in 1974 after 10 years as husband and wife, before marrying again in 1975 - the second union lasted just a year.
It will be interesting to see Lohan, who has been in the news for her legal troubles and jail stints the past few years, portray Hollywood's most iconic actor.
