Published Sep 02, 2011Considering his career has been running since the '50s, Glen Campbell's probably got more than a story or two to tell about the music biz. Movie producers have no doubt figured this out, as it's been revealed that there are plans to produce a biopic on the "Rhinestone Cowboy" singer's life.
Paste points to an as-of-yet unnamed project being put together by James Keach, who produced the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. It's hinted that the film could tackle a number of moments in Campbell's life, from his early hits like "Wichita Lineman," to hosting his own variety show The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour in the late '60s, to his substance abuse problems and current battle with Alzheimer's disease. It's been a long and varied life for the singer, indeed.
Coming off the recent release of his final LP, Ghost On the Canvas, an album featuring collaborations with Paul Westerberg and Robert Pollard that we described as a "glorious and graceful farewell," it looks as if interest in the iconic country star is sky-rocketing. More news is sure to come.
