Brunette beauties Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angelina Jolie have both expressed interests in the role of Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming biopic on the famed starlet. The film will be adapted from Sam Kashner and Nancy Shoenberger’s book, Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century.

Jolie recently announced that she would take on Taylor’s famous role of Cleopatra in a new biographic adaptation as well. It was during the filming of the original 1963 movie that Taylor and Burton fell in love before she divorced her then-husband for Burton. Producers currently have three Hollywood actors in mind to play Richard Burton – Russell Crowe, Clive Owen and Colin Farrell.  –Natthakan Garunrangseewong

    I am not feeling Jolie for the Taylor role, on looks alone she's too angular, and Zeta-Jones has proven some real acting chops.
