Lindsay Lohan is ready to sign on to play Elizabeth Taylor, according to reports.
It looks like she’s nearing a deal to make it official, as she’s also working to complete her community service faster than required to clear the way for filming.
At Lohan’s probation progress hearing, she is expected to receive glowing reports as a model morgue employee. If that goes as planned, she should be good.
The plan is to sign the deal early next week, barring unforeseen setbacks.
The Lifetime film will focus on Taylor’s tumultuous relationship with two-time husband Richard Burton, and producers were reportedly keen on Lohan – like Taylor, a star at an extremely young age and often maligned – to star as the icon.
This is just one of many projects LiLo is reportedly considering.
We made fun of the notion that Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos could revive her career, but she made nearly a million bucks, and is actually getting more offers than she’s received in years due to her popularity – and growing maturity.
Consider THG humbled.
