Lohan May Play Elizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan’s back again—this time with her clothes on. After posing nude as Marilyn Monroe in Playboy, the actress is reportedly in talks to emulate another screen legend, Elizabeth Taylor, in a Lifetime original movie. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news that Lohan would play the lead in Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story, which chronicles the star’s epic romance with Richard Burton, a notoriously tempestuous relationship that was the most publicized of its time. The project has allegedly been in the works since last May and is set to be produced by Larry Thompson, who did Lifetime’s Amish Grace. Like Taylor, Lohan has seen plenty of ups and downs in her career, from her starring roles in successful films like The Parent Trap and Mean Girls to stints in rehab and jail. At the end of her life, Liz Taylor’s career achievements made her one of the most admired movie stars ever. Whether Lohan can make a Hollywood comeback remains to be seen.
