Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to I Saw the Light, the story of the legendary country music singer Hank Williams.

The film chronicles Williams’ meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. During brief life, he created one of the most enduring bodies of work in American music.

Written and directed by Marc Abraham, I Saw the Light stars Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen,Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones. Based on Colin Escott’s biography of Williams, the film was produced by RatPac Entertainment’s Brett Ratner and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert alongside G. Marq Roswell and Abraham. James Packer of RatPac and Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media Finance executive produced.

No release date has been set yet, but film will likely receive an awards-season run.

“All of us at RatPac Entertainment are thrilled that Sony Pictures Classics is distributing I Saw the Light, as Michael and Tom are unparalleled in their marketing and distribution expertise,” Ratner said. “This film is a perfect fit, especially given their passion for country music, and we could not be in better hands.”

Added Abraham: “For over 20 years, Sony Classics has been making, distributing and supporting independent films and filmmakers. If you want your film presented to the right audiences with fervor and in the company of previous artists from Kurosawa to Bergman and countless others, you wish upon a star for [Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents] Tom Bernard and Michael Barkerto be in your corner.”

Elizabeth Olsen For Kiehl’s

Every Earth Month, Kiehl’s solicits celebrity fans to redesign product packaging for a good cause. This year, Elizabeth Olsen and Maggie Q remixed the Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado jar. One-hundred percent of the net profits for each limited-edition cream will go to Recycle Across America, an organization that creates easy environmental solutions in the US.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen were just two of the new faces on the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron when we visited last June. The duo, who are playing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively, talked with us about their first foray into the Marvel universe and how their characters will shake up the team’s dynamic. Get a glimpse at the pair in action in the all-new featurette above, and read on to learn four things you should know about the Avengers newcomers and their characters.

Expect Accents

Twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch hail from Eastern Europe — which actual or imaginary country Taylor-Johnson and Olsen wouldn’t reveal — and hence worked together on a dialect. “Whether they decide to re-ADR that in the end,” Taylor-Johnson joked, “I don’t know.” It also sounds as though the duo had a lot of creative freedom in developing their accent together. “It’s something we got to create,” Olsen told us.

It’s not quite like Luke finding out Leia’s his sister, but it’s not far off. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen starred in last year’s staggeringly popular Godzilla movie where they played husband and wife (albeit with not a lot of shared screen time) and in one month’s time, we’re going to see them play brother and sister in the behemoth that is Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which they will have plenty of scenes together as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch respectively. We spoke to the actors, along with several other outlets, during a set visit last year about playing scenes together, creating their characters, and joining the biggest franchise in history. No pressure or anything.

Olsen says it was much easier to play Taylor-Johnson’s twin after coming off playing husband and wife, weirdly. “If you look at the comics,” she says, “the two of them are always so close to each other, that the proximity, their comfortability around each other is so specific, and to the rest of the group. And so it’s nice to know Aaron and it’s also nice to have a friend when you’re joining such a big project like this with potentially intimidating people. It’s been really nice to have Aaron.” And she felt like the two actors had their origin also, even though it was a totally different franchise. “It is nice to feel like we have this; they have their movies, well we had a movie too.”
