PEOPLE.com has a first look at the promotional poster for the film featuring Lohan, 26, looking like the Hollywood legend in dark red lipstick and draped in diamonds.
Alongside Lohan are words that describe Taylor's story, but that could easily apply to Lohan herself: "child star," "paparazzi," "controversial love affairs."
When Lohan was initially cast in the film, she said, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
Liz & Dick is scheduled to air on Lifetime in November.
