Singer songwriter Jewel is headed to Atlanta to portray June Carter Cash in “Ring of Fire,” a Lifetime movie about the country star.
“Five days until we move to Atlanta to film the June Carter Cash story,” Jewel tweeted Tuesday. “Now on to the business of learning how tune my autoharp…”
CBS reported that Matt Ross will portray Johnny Cash in the movie based on John Carter Cash’s book about his mother.
June and Johnny were memorably portrayed by Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix in the 2005 movie about the couple, “Walk the Line.”
The Lifetime project cranks up soon and needs lots of young extras. Casting folks need several sets of twins of various ages including 3 to 6-month-old twins with brownish hair with a touch of red. They also need kids ages 3, 7, 11-13 and 18-year-olds. Sounds like the movie will portray the Carter Family from the very beginning.
