BBC has decided to Create a TV film around the most famous Hollywood couple And Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Not many are familiar with Lifetime’s attempt to make a similar movie with Lindsay Lohan as Taylor and Grant Bowler as Burton. Lifetime’s version was widely criticized and disliked, so thank god BBC decided to save the day

I’m quite looking forward to watch Helena Bonham Carter reprise the role of Elizabeth Taylor. Dominic West who you may remember from “The Wire” will be playing the role of Richard Burton. BBC have cast two amazing actors, who i believe will do amazingly well together.
