NEW YORK (AP) - Barbara Walters says she will interview Lindsay Lohan next month for ABC's "20/20" newsmagazine.
Walters announced on Monday's edition of her talk show, "The View," that the interview will air on Nov. 16.
It paves the way for Lohan's would-be comeback project, "Liz & Dick," which premieres later that month.
The Lifetime biopic stars the 26-year-old actress as screen diva Elizabeth Taylor. It spotlights Taylor's quarter-century love affair with celebrated leading man Richard Burton, whom she married and divorced twice.
Grant Bowler, whose credits include the TV series "True Blood" and "Lost," plays Burton in the film.
