The Hank Williams biopic will see the light of day on Nov. 27.
I Saw the Light will go to theaters in November and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor) will portray the country singer.
According to country artist Rodney Crowell, Hiddleston spent last September at Crowell’s home in Tennessee to study the life of the late singer. In a lengthy Facebook post, Crowell spoke of Hiddleston’s hard work ethic in studying the life of mannerisms of Williams.
“After nearly a month spent collaborating with this gifted artist, I’m as respectful of the man’s work ethic as I’m mystified by his transformational skills,” Crowell wrote. “Without a doubt, the filmmakers chose the right actor for the job.”
