There had been rumors floating around that Lindsay Lohan wanted to play Liz Taylor in an upcoming film, but few thought that she would actually land the role. It seems, however, that she will be playing the screen queen sometime soon!

Lohan is officially set to play Taylor in the made-for-TV movie Liz and Dick, which will be based on the latter's relationship with actor Richard Burton. While Lindsay may have been up to some supposed dramatics lately, she's also been seen taking steps to turn her life around. Hopefully this new career move (and the first work she's done in a long time) will help with her road to recovery! [via Gawker]

What do you think of Lindsay playing Liz?
