WE'LL "SEE THE LIGHT" IN NOVEMBER
Sony Pictures Classics has announced that its Hank Williams biopic starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will be released on Nov. 27th smack in the middle of awards season. The conventional wisdom is that SPC will push for Hiddleston for Best Actor at a minimum. The film could also make a play in a number of other categories.
"I Saw the Light" was at #5 on last week's first "Ten Bets" list. The selection of a late November release date doesn't harm its Telluride chances in the least and actually stokes the T-rode flames just a little bit.
Here's coverage of the SPC announcement:
"I Saw the Light" was directed by Marc Abraham ("Flash of Genius" TFF 2008). Here's the film's IMDb page:

Writer/director Justin Kurzel spoke recently to the British version of Yahoo Television about his upcoming "Macbeth" starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. The film is being distributed by The Weinstein Company and played the Cannes Film Festival. It is not yet scheduled for a U.S. release but is set for an October 2nd release in the U.K.
"Macbeth" was listed on last week's "Ten Best" as being "on the outside" but close.
