Elizabeth Taylor Movie Role Up for Grabs
The tumultuous, romantic relationship between film icons Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton (who were wed twice) will be the subject of a new film based on the book Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the Marriage of the Century.
Some of the material for the book was offered by Elizabeth Taylor herself, who provided love letters written to her by Burton and an unpublished first draft of Taylor’s 1965 autobiography.
The part of Taylor is one of the best movie roles to come along in a long, long time - and all of Hollywood is chomping at the bit to get involved. Sources say that Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta-Jones are both interested in the role. Clive Owen, Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe are all eager to play the part of Richard Burton.
