Principal photography for "Liz & Dick" started today in Los Angeles. Here's a sneak peek with the first official photo from the folks at Lifetime.
The Lifetime original movie stars Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor opposite Grant Bowler as Richard Burton.
With Christopher Monger (2010's "Temple Grandin") on board as scriptwriter, "Liz & Dick" will follow the on-again, off-again romance between Taylor and Burton. (The two were married twice and divorced twice.)
In a statement after getting the role, Lohan, 25, 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."
The film is expected to debut this year on Lifetime.
