Lindsay Lohan might have some vehicular issues to deal with, but she is moving right along with the production of her Lifetime movie, “Liz & Dick.”
Now, fans can feast their eyes on the first trailer for “Liz & Dick,” featuring Lohan as screen legend Elizabeth Taylor. Lifetime posted the debut trailer on its official YouTube channel on Thursday. During the clip, captions that could apply to either Lindsay or Liz (“infamous,” “scandalous” and “dangerous”) pop up on screen.
The Lifetime made-for-TV movie documents the torrid love affair of Taylor (Lohan) and Richard Burton (Grant Bowler) as they “drink, fight and fornicate.” The two met on the set of “Cleopatra” and fell passionately in love. They quickly became one of the most photographed couples in the world, with paparazzi documenting their every move.
“Lohan and Bowler, not only do they look like Taylor and Burton, but their acting together and chemistry really says to you that Liz and Dick live again. You can see it, sense it and feel the chemistry,” producer Larry A. Thompson told The Hollywood Reporter during the production’s first week of filming.
The promotional poster for “Liz & Dick” was revealed on Thursday, showcasing Lohan with wavy raven locks, bright red lips and lots of jewels.
When Lohan was was first cast as Taylor, she voiced her adoration of the Hollywood icon.
“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” she said, according to People magazine. “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.”
Most recently, Lohan shot a comeo scene with Charlie Sheen in “Scary Movie: 5.” Lohan and Sheen can be seen in bed together in the promotional photos.
“Liz & Dick” is scheduled to premiere on Lifetime in November.
