Nashville based film studios, 821 Entertainment Group and Strike Entertainment has greenlighted a biopic movie to do a film about the legendary country singer, Hank Williams Sr. Marc Abraham who works for Strike Entertainment will write the script. A director and the leading actor for the Hank Williams role has not yet been found.
Since Hank was just a young kid back in his time, the actor must be young too. Heath Ledger would have been my top choice to play Hank ’cause he would have been perfect in my opinion, but since Heath is obviously gone too…I don’t really know who else to play Hank.
Emille Hirsch wouldn’t be a bad choice to play Hank Sr. though.
