The film, "No Show Jones
" is going to chronicle George Jones' life, struggles with alcoholism, substance abuse, his marriage to Tammy Wynette, and his life spent with Nancy Jones
Alan Wenkus, a talented screenwriter, is putting together a screenplay for George's biopic film, "No Show Jones
".Nancy is helping make this movie become a reality
, and she can't wait to get George Jones' story out there to the masses.
Nancy had this to say about Tammy Wynette and the validity of the movie:
“We’ll definitely have Tammy in there. She was a big part of his life, and I love Tammy. I thought the world of Tammy and we ended up being best friends. I have quite a bit of things [in the script] that we’ve talked about, me and her,” says Jones. “I will do her justice. If George was a butt with her, I’ll tell that too. It will be an honest, honest movie.”
Nancy Jones will be the executive producer
, and is excited to create an authentic portrayal of George Jones' life
, saying "I don't want any lies. I want it exactly the way George started the [script] when he started it six years ago.
As for who Nancy wants to play her husband in the movie, she's thinking of having Brad Pitt or Bradley Cooper portray the late, great country music singer
.Nancy would also like to see Sandra Bullock play herself
, stating that "Sandra reminds me of me anyway, but we don't know yet. They're fixing to let me know probably in another month who they're going to cast.
Whatever the case may be, we are definitely excited for this movie to come out

He said I'll love you 'til I dieShe told him you'll forget in timeAs the years went slowly byShe still preyed upon his mind.He kept her picture on his wallWent half crazy now and thenHe still loved her through it allHoping she'd come back again.He kept some letters by his bedDated 1962 He had underlined in redEvery single I love you.I went to see him just todayOh, but I didn't see no tearsAll dressed up to go awayFirst time I'd seen him smile in years.He stopped loving her todayThey placed a wreath upon his doorAnd soon they'll carry him awayHe stopped loving her today.Ya' know she came to see him one last timeOh, we all wondered if she wouldAnd it kept running through my mindThis time he's over her for good.He stopped loving her todayThey placed a wreath upon his doorAnd soon they'll carry him awayHe stopped loving her today...
