I Saw the Light starring Tom Hiddleston (as Hank Williams) will be out in theaters on March 25th. The soundtrack details were released as well as a track from the album/movie. It’s funny hearing a Brit sing country music but Hiddleston pulls it off (of course he does). The movie also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Cherry Jones, Bradley Whitford, Maddie Hasson, and Wrenn Schmidt. It was written and directed by Marc Abraham. As Hank Williams fans, I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the soundtrack and seeing the movie.
I SAW THE LIGHT, the story of the legendary country western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life.

RatPac Entertainment’s Brett Ratner and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert produced the film, with G. Marq Roswell and Abraham. James Packer of RatPac Entertainment and Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media Finance executive produced. Notable director of photography Dante Spinotti was the cinematographer for the film.
