It looks like Marilyn Monroe isn't the only icon Lindsay Lohan can morph into. Elizabeth Taylor may be next on Lindsay's list!

 Deadline reports the 25-year-old actress is in early talks for the lead of Lifetime's original movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story. The film will be based on the romance between Richard Burton and Elizabeth. OK!
