"Liz & Dick": Enter Lindsay Lohan

Further to our previous reports, Lifetime Networks has confirmed that Lindsay Lohan will star as actress 'Elizabeth Taylor' in the Lifetime Original Movie "Liz & Dick". The film will be based on the true story of Taylor's romance with actor Richard Burton. Principal photography will start on the TV movie, June 2012 in Los Angeles, according to Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks : "...for nearly a quarter of a century, 'Taylor' and '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. "Yet 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..." "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," said Lohan. Click the images to enlarge...
