Shreveport’s Millennium Studios announced that “I Saw the Light,” a new film depicting the rise to stardom of country music legend Hank Williams, will begin filming here later this year. The movie will star English actor Tom Hiddleston.

Here’s how it appears on Millennium’s Facebook page:

Written and directed by Marc Abraham, ‘ Saw the Light’ will chronicle Williams’ rise to stardom and the effects of years of substance abuse that ended the performer’s life at age 29. The film is based on a biography by Colin Escott.

Production will begin in Louisiana in October, and will include such influential hits as “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Hey Good Lookin’” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” Hiddleston, who will do his own singing in the film, is perhaps best known as Loki in the Marvel films Thor and the Avengers.

“I Saw the Light” is set to shoot from mid-October through December of this year. The film’s tentative release date is late 2015.
