Lifetime announced today that despite Lindsay’s alleged assault, they are going to go forward with plans and have Lindsay Lohan play the late, great Liz Taylor in a made-for-tv-Lifetime movie called “Liz & Dick.”
Lifetime has always been known as the place that movies go when they are not good enough for either HBO or Showtime or primetime and are definitely not good enough for the movies. Lilo has wanted very badly to get back on the big screen, but I guess she’ll have to be happy being viewed on channel 40-something (I have no idea what channel Lifetime is on).
Lifetime said that they are “thrilled” that Lindsay has signed on to play a young version of Liz and that she “is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon.” (That sounds like Dina’s words not Lifetimes’.)
If Lindsay can keep her hiney out of jail, she”ll start production on the TV movie in June.
