First image of Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams arrives online

Sony Classics have recently released their first image of Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World) as country music legend Hank Williams in Marc Abraham's (Flash Of Genius) I Saw The Light.

Written and directed by Marc Abraham, the film is based on Colin Escott's biography of the man who scored hits with songs such as Your Cheatin' Heart, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry and Lovesick Blues. Williams, who died in 1953, is still considered one of the most significant country music artists and rose quickly, burned brightly and died at the age of 29 from heart failure brought on by pills and alcohol.

With Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), David Krumholtz (This Is The End), Bradley Whitford (The Cabin In The Woods), Maddie Hasson (God Bless America), Cherry Jones (Signs), Josh Pais (A Beautiful Mind) and Wrenn Schmidt (Preservation) also in the cast, I Saw The Light is set to arrive in the states on November 27, with no sign of a UK release date as yet.
