Glen Campbell Biopic in the Works

Glen Campbell may be best known for his hit “Rhinestone Cowboy,” but the country-pop singer has had a more extensive career than a few hits. He’s worked with artists such as The Monkees, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. He also toured with the Beach Boys in place of Brian Wilson and recorded on the famed Pet Sounds.

Now a biopic about his life is in the works and it will involve James Keach, the man who produced the award-winning Johnny Cash film, Walk the Line. The two films might be more similar than people think. Campbell dealt with substance abuse and marital problems. Perhaps the biggest difference is how big of a star Cash was compared to Campbell.

The 75-year-old singer has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and will partake in a goodbye tour over the course of a month.
