Hank Williams Biopic ‘I Saw the Light’ Gets Release Date
A release date for the Hank Williams biopic "I Saw the Light" has been announced. Good news for Williams' fans, or not, depending which side of the fence you're on on about the movie's London born star, Tom Hiddleston.
The movie, starring Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, will premiere on November 27th, 2015. It also stars Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones and Maddie Hasson, and was directed by Marc Abraham.
For any doubters though, Hiddleston says that he worked hard to honor Hank Sr.’s voice and character.
Hank’s life has a tragic arc, but in simple truth, he was a genius: a star that burned twice as bright and lived half as long,” the actor says. “It’s a huge role for me and a huge responsibility. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.
