Okay, look. There are a lot of jokes that could be made about this. If you got us going, we could probably produce a laundry list of jabs about a dead career and reaching a new low and so on. But you know what? We're not going to do that. Despite the stigma of doing a Lifetime movie before turning 45, we actually like this idea. Dare we say, we could totally get on board with Lindsay doing this movie! And it might actually do wonders for her!
Rumor has it that the Lifetime network is in talks to start production on a new original film about the life and loves of Elizabeth Taylor. The project is not a new idea (its been in early planning stages since May), but word that Lindsay Lohan might actually be signing on to the pic in the starring role is the big news that might finally get this flick out of the starting gate.
The telefilm, Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story, would focus on the tumultuous relationship between Liz and two-time husband Richard Burton. No word yet on who the producers are considering for the role of Richard, but if Lindsay does sign on, you know she'll want to have a say in that.
In a lot of ways, Lindsay could bring some of her own life experience to this role. True, Liz didn't get into nearly as much trouble as LiLo has by her age, but both of these ladies know a little something about being infamous! If Lindsay really worked hard at this, we can imagine many more doors opening for her.
Spray yourself with some White Diamonds and say a little prayer, Lindsay. This could be it!
