Matt Ross from FX’s American Horror Story will play Johnny Cash. Directing is Allison Anders whose credits include the film Grace of My Heart and TV series Sex in the City, Grosse Pointe and Southland. Richard Freidenberg is writing the screenplay and John Carter Cash, Steven Michaels and Jonathan Koch are executive producing.

Rob Sharenow of Lifetime said “Many people know about the legendary love story of Johnny and June, but June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses. This movie will explore all aspects of the woman behind the icon, and we’re thrilled Jewel will be playing the role.”

Filming will occur this summer in Atlanta with the film scheduled to air later in the year.
