Angelina Jolie as Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s love affair gets a biopic nod and many actors and actresses are being attached to potentially play the iconic couple.

ETonline has just mentioned that Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta Jones are both interested in playing Taylor and the likes of Russell Crowe, Clive Owen and Collin Farrell want to play Richard Burton’s part. Somehow, I get the feeling Angelina Jolie will get this part and she might be joined by Clive Owen, but that is just how I feel it may pan out. Mike Nichols has expressed his interest in directing this film. The movie will be based on the book Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the Marriage of the Century.
