Lindsay Lohan Gets No Dick…Yet!

Lindsay Lohan Liz And Dick Casting

What’s LiLo to do without a Dick to her Liz?!

Party it up with Paris Hilton weeks before heading back to work, of course! LOLz!!

Reportedly, though Lindsay Lohan is set and ready to take on the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime flick, Liz & Dick, there’s STILL no Dick to be found!

The biopic plans to start production June 4 — just 2 weeks away — but supposedly, the casting decision for Richard Burton is almost in place.

…Or so says exec producer Larry Thompson, who states:

"We hope to have someone in place very soon. We are very close."

Uh…whatever you say?? They are definitely cutting it pretty close, timewise!

Thompson hasn’t even named a frontrunner or anyone he’s been eyeing up for the role, which seriously makes us doubt the production will stick to its schedule!

Lifetime’s made no other casting announcements for the flick yet, either.

June 4 is right around the corner, people…!! Time's a tickin'!

It's going to be an Elizabeth Taylor extravaganza in New York this December.

Christie's announced this week 68 iconic looks from Taylor's designer wardrobe will join the 269 pieces of jewelry that were already scheduled to be auctioned off between December 13th and 16th.

Christie's fashion curator said of the collection:

"This is not a red carpet wardrobe edited by stylists but a treasure trove of looks chosen by the last of the great movie stars. Many of the pieces in this lifetime collection were couture, custom made for Ms. Taylor by designers who became her close friends, including Valentino Garavani, Gianni Versace and Gianfranco Ferre."

Some of the items up for grabs include a Atelier Versace beaded evening jacket with portraits of the actress, a yellow Irene Sharaff dress that Taylor wore to her 1964 wedding to Richard Burton, a red Valentino Couture ball gown, Thierry Mugler suit and many more.

Hopefully all of Elizabeth's items find a good home!

Scorsese In Talks For Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton Love Affair Flick

elizabeth-taylor-richard-burton-movie.jpg

It's one of the most talked about Hollywood romances of all time! He'd be a fool not to take it on!

Paramount Pictures is in the middle of securing the rights to make a biopic based on the star-crossed romance between the late Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The studio is currently in talks with the Taylor estate to secure her life rights, while Burton's widow, Sally Hay Burton, has already made the actor's resources and library available. Along with the estates, Paramount has also optioned Furious Love, the book by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger about their affair, and the hunt for a screenwriter is on.

However, the studio isn't just looking to make another tawdry romance. This thing's gonna have some depth! Paramount is actively pursuing Martin Scorsese to direct and possibly produce, through his Paramount-based Sikelia banner.

Wow! Imagine that! Martin is an excellent choice, no doubt, and when you stop to think about it, Liz deserves the best of the best to tell her story. We approve!
