Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West are on board to play Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in a BBC biopic titled "Burton and Taylor." The film, written by William Ivory, will focus on the story of their appearance in 1983's Broadway revival of the Noel Coward play "Private Lives," following their second divorce. The stars' highly publicized and often tumultuous romance was mirrored by the story of "Private Lives"'s divorcees.

Martin Scorsese and Paramount also have the rights to Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger's book about the pair, "Furious Love." And don't forget, Lindsay Lohan starred in Lifetime's abomination "Liz and Dick."
