Lindsay Lohan in talks to play Elizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play a young Dame Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming TV movie, according to a report.

Bosses at the Lifetime network have been working on a film about Dame Elizabeth Taylor since last May (11), two months after her death in March (11).

Independent producer Larry Thompson is overseeing the project, tentatively entitled Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story, and insiders tells The Hollywood Reporter that Mean Girls star Lohan has been discussing the lead role with TV chiefs.

The film is said to focus on the love affair between Dame Elizabeth 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.
