News is out and Tom Hiddleston has been picked up to play Hank Williams in an upcoming biopic. On Friday, CBS News shared this big casting news and of course fans have mixed feelings on who they picked. It is going to be impossible to please everyone when it comes to Hank Williams.

This biopic about Hank Williams is in the very early stages. News is out that it will be called "I Saw the Light." He died at the young age of 29 and this movie will take fans up to this point in his life. Mark Abraham will be the one directing this movie. They will start the production on this movie in October and it will take place in Louisiana.

One big thing that Hiddleston will have to do in this film is be able to sing. He will do more than one of Hank William's songs and fans will have to decide if they like it or not. This is going to be a hard one to make everyone happy with so he will have to do a great job with the new biopic.
