After lots of speculation, it's finally been confirmed that Lindsay Lohan will be portraying the late Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime film, Liz & Dick

This is definitely a step in the right direction for Lohan, who as of late has been more known for her drama in the court room as opposed to on screen. The role will mark one of her first appearances in a film since 2010's Machete.

"We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor," Lifetime's Executive Vice-President, Rob Sharenow, said in a statement. "She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon."

There may just be hope for her yet.
