A new film is in development that would chronicle the legendary romance between Hollywood icons Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Based on the book 'Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century' -- which documents the couple's heated relationship on-screen and off-screen, through marriage, divorce, and then re-marriage -- the only question that remains is which modern-day actor and actress can bring justice to this remarkable true-story romance?

Based on the book 'Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century' -- which documents the couple's heated relationship on-screen and off-screen, through marriage, divorce, and then re-marriage -- the only question that remains is which modern-day actor and actress can bring justice to this remarkable true-story romance?

Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta-Jones are both interested in taking on the challenging role of Liz Taylor. And for the part of Richard Burton, three rugged leading men have set their sights on the role: Russel Crowe, Clive Owen, and Colin Farrell. Lastly, Mike Nichols is considering directing this film -- bringing his career full-circle from his first film, 1966's 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,' which starred the real-life Taylor and Burton.

Taylor granted the authors of 'Furious Love' -- Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger -- unheard of access to her personal items, including photos and letters from Burton.
