Jolie, Zeta-Jones Interested In Elizabeth Taylor Role


According to a report from the Telegraph, Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta-Jones have expressed interest in playing Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming film about the actress’ storied love life. Mike Nichols would reportedly make the movie, an adaptation of the book Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century, itself based on love letters from Burton and a draft of Taylor's autobiography. Sources have named Russell Crowe, Clive Owen and Colin Farrell as potential Burtons. While Zeta-Jones arguably more closely resembles a younger Taylor, Jolie may have a slight edge in that she's already set to take on one of her most iconic roles. [Telegraph via ONTD]
