LIZ & DICK, Lifetime, Previews & Teasers
Lifetime has just released a new behind-the-scenes video for their upcoming original TV biopic of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton titled, LIZ & DICK. The film stars Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler in the title roles. "I personally understand Liz because you're living your life for everyone to see," Lohan comments in the clip. "You get to a point where you become numb to it and you just live your life the way you that you feel you need to live it." Check out the video below!
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance -- often called "the marriage of the century" -- was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton's love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
Regarding the official casting announcement, Lohan said, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
"We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor," added Sharenow. "She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon."
Liz & Dick will be produced by Larry A. Thompson Productions, Inc. Larry A. Thompson (Amish Grace, Lucy & Desi) will serve as executive producer, with Christopher Monger (Temple Grandin) writing.
