Lifetime released on Thursday the first official teaser for its upcoming movie Liz and Dick, in which troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan takes on the role of the late Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor.

Unfortunately, the trailer doesn't really show much of anything beyond a moving still of Lohan dressed up Taylor, set to some kind of moody elevator music.

"Lindsay Lohan Is Elizabeth Taylor," the trailer reads, before teasing, "Coming this fall."

Sure, it's not the most exciting thing in the world. But it's nonetheless a testament to Lohan's celebrity power, in that even the smallest glimpse of the high-profile project is enough to pique people's interest.

And for good reason. Liz and Dick is the first major role for Lohan, 26, since she was taken off of formal probation, in March. (The probation stemmed from numerous DUI arrests over the last few years.)

Lohan remains on informal probation following an incident in which she was accused of stealing a necklace from a local jewelry store.

During the filming of Liz and Dick, which costars Ugly Betty hunk Grant Bowler as Taylor's former husband, Richard Burton, Lohan was also involved in a number of high-profile incidents off-set.

The most infamous one involved paramedics being rushed to the scene of her hotel room, in Marina del Ray, after an unnamed person found her unresponsive.

Lohan's rep, Steve Honig, later clarified the incident to Celebuzz, saying, "Lindsay worked a grueling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 pm and worked through the night until 8 am this morning."

“She took a nap before shooting her final scene,” the rep added. “Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon.”

Lohan -- who will also star opposite porn star James Deen in The Canyons -- was most recently placed at LA's Chateau Marmont, where she reportedly had a slumber party with Lady Gaga and Lana Del Ray.

    Dear All : Whilst I am not a Lindsay Lohan fan, you have to remember that before all of the things in her personal life happened, she was a good actor! she did not become famous because of the things that happened in her personal life, she became famous because of her acting. Now that she is trying to make a new self, we should give her a try and support her as she returns to her old glory days.
