If Scorsese really does this after all, it could end up being the ultimate show...he's famously a cinema buff, and as recently as The Aviator (2004) proved a great showman at recounting old Hollywood, my favorite scenes in the very long, slightly uneven biopic. The ultimate question (aside from whose brave enough to write this is the first place; no screenwriter has been announced) is who can possibly be cast in these roles. These are beyond larger than life roles, and simply put, they don't quite make them like they used to. The acting styles of the days of Burton and Taylor have changed, both on and off set. The easiest first guess at Taylor would probably be Angelina Jolie, no stranger to scandal or love affairs, or critics dismissing her acting over her looks. But that may appear too easy. And what of Burton, an actor of his gravitas almost appears unfathomable today. Whatever the case, let the casting games begin.
