|Still from Mean Girls|
Although I'm not quite sure what Elizabeth Taylor would think of it, Executive Producer Larry Thompson confirmed first in January via E! News that Lindsay Lohan is set to star as that Film Icon in an upcoming Lifetime TV Movie titled tentatively, Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story. Megan Fox also was in- the-running but it is said that she is focusing now on starting a Family with Brian Austin Green.
The Film centers around the tumultuous relationship of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, as they met while filming Cleopatra and subsequently wound-up marrying and divorcing twice. What better Actress to take us through the Drama than someone who knows it well herself? Production is set to take place in-and-around Toronto.
TMZ confirmed today that Lohan has been given the green light to work here in Canada after they had received confirmation from her Probation Officer and the Court that she completed her Community Work requirements. We couldn't be happier for Lohan who is making a genuine effort to sort herself out, as she is set to return to the same City where she made 2004's legendary Mean Girls!
