Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler have just started production on the Lifetime Original Movie “Liz & Dick,” based on the true story of the Elizabeth Taylor’s historic romance with actor Richard Burton, and the first photo from the project is now online.
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.
“Liz & Dick” is 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.
