The Jimmie Rodgers Legacy has teamed up with producer Benford Standley, who we've known for years, and who worked some years back with our father Jimmie Dale Court, who I am sure most know was the grandson of Jimmie Rodgers. They had kicked around Hollywood working on interest in the Jimmie Rodgers' story as a feature movie, then due to the untimely death of our dad, the movie idea went on a sidetrack until now...
We're going to stay on board the movie as one of the producing entities, and will be involved with the writing of the script. Benford will be a producer, and we'll work with him to find some of the help we will need to produce the movie as either an independent production and/or find a major studio that will work with us to bring this great story to the Big Silver Screen.
We are very excited to work with Benford to bring this long time dream of our dad's to get a full-length feature movie of his granddad to the movie theaters. Before Merle Haggard died, Benford had been working with him not only on a documentary about our great-grandfather, but they were talking about doing a movie which Merle wanted to appear in and help produce. Benford and Merle had already started talks with some characters like Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, David Frizzell, Merel's son's Marty, Ben and Noel Haggard, and others to do cameos in the movie.
We will soon have a treatment posted on the movie, and you will be able to follow the progress and follow along with us as we go through the "Making Of" the Jimmie Rodgers Feature Movie.
