Megan Fox looks to have begun fierce competition with Lindsay Lohan to play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime telemovie “Liz and Dick” says E! Online.
Lohan confirmed she is still up for the role at the Weinstein Company Golden Globes after party on Sunday night.
The telemovie’s executive producer Larry Thompson however says “I’ve been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox… It’s a very serious selection. It’s like casting for Hollywood royalty.”
While Lohan remains one of the frontrunners, her probation status is reportedly “a complication.” Shooting will kick off this Spring in Canada.
