Plans are moving forward to bring the life of country music legend George Jones to the big screen.

According to Billboard, Los Angeles based 28 Entertainment has purchased the rights to turn Jones' story into a feature film.

Jones' widow, Nancy, said she and her late husband began working on the script six years ago with writer Dennis Baxter.

It is not immediately known who will play The Possum in the film or when it will hit theaters.

Jones passed away at a Nashville hospital in April at the age of 81.
