Lindsay Lohan, who recently emulated Marilyn Monroe for Playboy, may be moving on to another iconic woman of Hollywood’s past: Elizabeth Taylor.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lohan, 25, is in talks with Lifetime to play the late “Cleopatra” star in a made-for-TV movie.

The project has been in development since May, according to the site, with Larry Thompson overseeing the film. Thompson produced Lifetime’s critically-acclaimed “Amish Grace” in 2010.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news and reported that the film will focus on Taylor’s personal life rather than her career.

Titled "Elizabeth and Richard: A Love Story,” the movie is centered around Taylor’s on-again-off-again romance with husband Richard Burton, according to EW. The pair were married from 1964-1974 and again from 1975-1976.

Like Taylor, Lohan grew up in the spotlight, appearing in Disney’s “The Parent Trap” at the age of 11. Taylor appeared in her first film, “There’s One Born Every Minute,” at 9 years old.

Still, Lohan’s acting career has been virtually non-existent lately, and her most recent major role was in 2010’s “Machete.”

Lohan's camp has yet to confirm if the starlet will make her comeback in the Taylor flick. 

When asked for a response to the reports, a representative for Lohan told E News: "We are not going to comment on hearsay."
