Merle Haggard’s life is about to become the subject of a new movie. The late singer’s widow Theresa announced on social media that she’s in talks with Amazon Studios about making a biopic on the singer.
“I am happy to announce that I have been in negotiations with Amazon studios and Hollywood director Robin Bissel to make the Merle Haggard movie,” she shared on Instagram. “I promised my late husband, Merle Haggard that I would get this done and I’m giving it my best shot.”
She adds, “Merle had a great life. And as we used to joke about he had many lives and this will be the first of this magnitude to show how great of an artist and man he truly was. I hope to bring him the glory he so deserves.”
