Helena Bonham Carter And Dominic West To Play Elizabeth Taylor And Richard Burton

What the world needs now is a TV movie about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton like Lindsay Lohan needs a hole in the head.

Yep, a real good, palette cleansing TV movie about Liz and Dick would go down a treat right about now.

The BBC might be the ones to deliver. They’re planning the 90-minute telefilm Burton and Taylor for BBC 4, set to star Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West in the title roles. Well… they don’t look right, to my eyes. But they might nail it. How good will they be at acting lurid overacting, do you reckon?

According to the BBC announcement, the film is going to be set in 1983, around a staging of Noel Coward’s Private Lives with the two superstars. It was a notorious production; you may want to check out the New York Magazine account of just what a mess it was.
