It’s the movie they said would never get made thanks to the off-screen antics of its controversial star, Lindsay Lohan — but the newly-released trailer for Lifetime’s upcoming Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton biopic Liz & Dick suggests the project could be irresistible for much more than a just a peek to see if she can really pull it off.
With sumptuous sets and costumes, and enough drama crammed into just this 30-second peek to make your cheeks flush, the film — directed by veteran telefilm maker Larry Thompson and penned by Temple Grandin screenerwriter Christopher Monger — delves into the violet-eyed icon’s tumultuous love affair with actor Richard Burton (True Blood‘s Grant Bowler).
