Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast "I Saw The Light," the film about the life of country western singer Hank Williams.

Marc Abraham is directing from his own script about Williams' meteoric rise to fame, and the price that fame took on his personal life. He died at age 29 of heart failure.

The film is based on the biography by Colin Escott and is produced by RatPac’s Brett Rather and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert, along with G. Marq Roswell and Abraham.
