Yes, it's happening. "Liz & Dick" has bucked the odds and is actually filming with Lindsay Lohan actually showing up on set. For real. And now the legendary Elizabeth Taylor will have her life story told by the fine folks at Lifetime -- who don't know a real life person they can't exploit and sensationalize -- with Lohan in the title role. The movie gods are crying.

Liz & Dick Lindsay Lohan Grant Bowler

Update: The first official look at Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton has landed. 

Yes, it's happening. "Liz & Dick" has bucked the odds and is actually filming with Lindsay Lohan actually showing up on set. For real. And now the legendary Elizabeth Taylor will have her life story told by the fine folks at Lifetime -- who don't know a real-life person they can't exploit and sensationalize -- with Lohan in the title role. The movie gods are crying.

But there is a car crash aspect to this whole thing that's drawing us in, and of course we had to look when the first images of Lohan as Taylor landed online. And well, at least they got the hair down, right? Judging the film from makeup room pics and paparazzi pics probably isn't fair, but then again neither is Lohan playing Taylor. Zing. At any rate, it didn't take long for the filmmakers to get her in a swimsuit, so there's that. Update: Swimsuit pics removed by request. But then again, considering this is Lifetime, we're not expecting a world class production.

We presume that dude in the t-shirt and shades is Grant Bowler looking nothing Richard Burton as well. Whatever, guess we shouldn't have expected too much. Let's just hope the script by Christopher Monger (HBO's Emmy-award winning "Temple Grandin") can make up for the rest of project's shortcomings. [TMZ/Deadline]
