Adding to the slew of music biopics that are currently in development, it looks like Josh Brolin and Jessica Chastain have been tapped to play famous country pair and former husband-and-wife George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Brolin, who will serve as a producer on the film, has mentioned the project in the past, but in a new interview on Conan (via Indiewire), he seemed to indicate that the film was going forward. On his casting, Brolin joked, “I have a bit of a past and when they were trying figure out who might be best to play him, they thought what about Brolin? Who has been to jail in the last 10 years?”
Jones passed away in 2013, Wynette in 1998.
