It seems that Hollywood’s goddesses protect Lindsay Lohan‘s career! We all saw that she channeled Marilyn Monroe for her recent Playboy pictorial, and now the actress’ next big film role could be portraying another Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor!
According to Entertainment Weekly, “Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story,” would focus on Taylor‘s long and public romance with Burton. The film was originally announced as part of Lifetime‘s 2011-2012 development slate.
Elizabeth and Richard were married twice -first from 1964-1974, and again from 1975-1976. Last month, the late actress’ jewelry collection, including a number of pieces that were gifts from Burton, went for $137 million as part of an auction of Taylor‘s possessions that sold for a total of $157 million.
Lindsay playing Liz might is a very good thing for Lohan‘s career, indicating she hasn’t hit rock bottom as some like to smear all over the tabloids. Hollywood loves a good comeback, and hopefully this will be the perfect role for this beautiful young star. Like Taylor, Lindsay was famous at a young age and grew up in the spotlight.
The project helmed by producer Larry Thompson has been in development since May 2011.
