George Jones - George Jones Biopic In The Works

Country star George Jones' widow has signed up to produce a biopic about her late husband.

The He Stopped Loving Her Today hitmaker passed away in April (13) at the age of 81, but now his partner, Nancy Jones, is making sure the singer's legacy will never fade by collaborating with bosses at 28 Entertainment on a movie about his life.

Dennis L. Baxter, who was working on a biopic project with Jones when he was alive, has been tapped to write the script.

Nancy Jones says, "Over the years we have been approached to make George’s life into a feature film, but it was not until Dennis Baxter became involved that we were confident the story could be told accurately.

"George and I started working with Dennis six years ago in crafting the life-long story. Knowing George had input in this film and that it will be told the way he wanted it told, I feel we are in good hands."
