Taylor, 78, addressed those rumors via Twitter with the following statement:

    “Hold your horses world. I’ve been hearing all kinds of rumours about someone being cast to play me in a film about Richard and myself, No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself. Not at least until I’m dead, and at the moment I’m having too much fun being alive…and I plan on staying that way. Happiness to all.”

According to casting rumors, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angelina Jolie were in the running to star in the film as Taylor. The rumored movie was to be based on a book about Taylor and Burton ... written by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger.
