British Artist Taylor To Make Poet Film With Cash Music

British artist SAM TAYLOR-WOOD will combine the music of late legend JOHNNY CASH with the life of WILLIAM BLAKE when she directs a film about the eighteenth century poet.

Taylor-Wood, who was convinced by the TYGER! TYGER! creator's worth by actor RAY WINSTONE, has drawn parallels between the MAN IN BLACK singer and Blake who died in 1827 - they were both religious and familiar with narcotics.

While he is best known for playing hard men in SEXY BEAST and NIL BY MOUTH, Winstone will play Blake and singer-songwriter KRIS KRISTOFFERSON will play the part of God.

She says, "I'm trying to convince Ray that he should use Cash as the blueprint for Blake.

"I can't say I was that knowledgeable about Blake when Ray told me he was keen on the film."
