I Saw The Light, Movies  •  By  •  0 Comments

DEADLINE – Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast of RatPac Entertainment and Bron Studios’ I Saw The Light, the film about the life of country western singer Hank Williams. Deadline’s Mike Fleming broke the news this summer that Tom Hiddleston nabbed the Williams role and will be singing classics like “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’”. Olsen will play Williams’ wife Audrey Mae. Marc Abraham is directing from his own script about Williams’ meteoric rise to fame, and the price that fame took on his personal life. He died at age 29 of heart failure.

Pic is based on the biography by Colin Escott and is produced by RatPac’s Brett Rather and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert, along with G. Marq Roswell and Abraham. James Packer will executive produce for RatPac Entertainment. I Saw The Light is also a Creative Wealth Media Finance co-production. Olsen recently completed filming her superhero role in Marvel’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron after co-starring in Legendary’s monster hit Godzilla. She’s repped by The Gersh Agency, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP.

King Arthur, Movies  •  By  •  0 Comments

VARIETY – Charlie Hunnam is director Guy Ritchie’s choice to play King Arthur in the Warner Bros.-Village Roadshow medieval tentpole.

Elizabeth Olsen is the frontrunner for the female lead. Idris Elba is attached to play a Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur.

Hunnam, who stars in “Sons of Anarchy,” read for the part recently along with Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney.

Joby Harold wrote the the script and is producing with Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. Plot details are under wraps with the film set to open on July 22, 2016.

Disney released “King Arthur” in 2004 starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley. Warners had been developing an “Arthur and Lancelot” project with David Dobkin directing and Kit Harington starring, but the project never made it into production.

Hunnam is repped by CAA and Brillstein.

The Deadline.com site first reported the news about Hunnam.
