The 'Godzilla' star will play the wife of the legendary country music singer

Elizabeth Olsen has boarded Marc Abraham’s I Saw the Light, the Hank Williams biopic from RatPac Entertainment and Bron Studios.

Olsen will play Williams’ wife in the film about the legendary country western singer. Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston was earlier cast to play Williams in the indie, which will start shooting in Louisiana next month.

Abraham adapted the screenplay for I Saw the Light from Colin Escott’s biography, which portrays the impact Williams’ fame had on his health and personal life.

Olsen’s recent credits include Avengers: Age of Ultron and Very Good Girls. She is represented by the Gersh Agency and Brillstein Entertainment.
