Hank Williams' biopic to be filmed in Shreveport

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Get ready to hear Loki sing.

Tom Hiddleston, best known as Loki, a character from the "The Avengers" film franchise, will star in "I Saw The Light" - a Hank Williams biopic set to begin shooting in Shreveport in October.

The Times reports Millennium Studios made the announcement Tuesday on its Facebook page.

Written and directed by Marc Abraham, "I 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 1994 biography by Colin Escott.

The studio says Hiddleston will do his own singing in the film.

A preliminary release date is set for 2015.
