London: Hollywood siren Megan Fox is up against troubled actress Lindsay Lohan for the part of Elizabeth Taylor in a new TV movie.

The `Jonah Hex` star is in negotiation for the part in made-for-TV production `Liz and Dick` for the Lifetime channel, the film`s executive producer Larry Thompson has confirmed, a website reported.

"I`ve been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversation with other actresses, including Megan Fox. It`s a very serious selection. It`s like casting for Hollywood royalty," Thompson said.

It is said that Lohan is particularly keen to win the role following a troublesome year.
