Prior to her death in March 2011, Taylor -- who passed away at age 79 -- was long revered as an industry sex symbol. Should she snag the role, amping up her sex appeal shouldn't be an issue for Lohan, who channeled Marilyn Monroe for her recent nude Playboy pictorial.

"Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature," the Mean Girls star -- who completed her fifth jail stint in 2011 -- has said. "Knowing yourself and your body is so important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence."
