Hank Williams Bio-Pic: Find Out Who Will Play Hank

Posted June 16th, 2014 @ 7:36am by Find Out Who Will Play Hank Williams in a new bio-pic...

Tom Hiddleston, who played "Loki" in the Thor and Avengers movies, will tackle a very different character in October, when he starts filming a new Hank Williams bio-pic I Saw the Light.

Hiddleston will reportedly do his own singing in the film, which is based on a biography by Colin Escott and is being written and directed by Marc Abraham.

This will be the fourth movie to center around Williams, but the first since 1964's Your Cheatin' Heart -- which starred George Hamilton -- to tell the story of his entire short life. Two low-budget films, the 2012 TV flickThe Last Ride and the 1980 Canadian production Hank Williams: The Show He Never Gave, were based on specific incidents.
