BBC Four have rounded up Helena Bonham Carter (looking positively...normal) and Dominic West (McNulty forever) for their biopic, penned by William Ivory ("Made In Dagenham") and directed by Richard Laxton (the upcoming "Effie Gray" with Dakota Fanning and Emma Thompson). As you might guess by the 90-minute runtime, this won't be an expansive, decades-spanning look at the pair, but will instead zero in on Burton and Taylor's appearance on stage together in the Broadway production of Noel Coward's "Private Lives" in 1983. It was a production fraught with drama behind the scenes, but it was a big success, though critics savaged it.
"Burton & Taylor" will air later this year across the pond. No word yet when it will drop in the U.S. [Bleeding Cool]
