There's a new Liz in town!

BBC America has released the first photo from its upcoming TV film Burton and Taylor, which stars Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Of course, Lohan recently portrayed the late legend in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick, with Grant Bowler serving as her Burton (and you can relive the TV movie's best and worst moments in case you've forgotten what a gem it was). So let the Liz Taylor showdown begin!

Burton and Taylor focuses on the iconic couple's relationship during their appearance in a 1983 revival of the play Private Lives, which ran for 63 performances on Broadway. 

Carter and West's take on the couple will premiere this fall on BBC America.

Who do you think is the better Elizabeth Taylor? Sound off in the comments!
