Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox compete for Elizabeth Taylor biopic

Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox are in talks to play Elizabeth Taylor according to Larry Thompson, executive producer of Lifetime movie Liz & Dick.

"I've been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox," Thompson said.

"It's a very serious selection," Thompson continued. "It's like casting for Hollywood royalty."

Whilst we definitely agree that Liz Taylor is Hollywood royalty, we're not entirely sure we'd place Lindsay Lohan or Megan Fox into that particular category.

Still, the actresses have a lot in common - they're both 25, they've both courted more than their fair share of controversy, and, perhaps most importantly in this context, they both bear more than a passing resemblance to Liz.

We'll find out which actress has won the race to play one of Britain's finest actresses very soon, as the movie starts shooting in the spring.
