New Johnny Cash documentary to focus on legendary Folsom Prison concert

With January marking the 50th anniversary of the legendary performance by Johnny Cash inside the walls of Folsom Prison, a new documentary will chronicle the performance.

The documentary is directed by Thom Zimny, who has previously worked on the HBO documentary, Elvis Presley: The Searcher, and a number of pieces on Bruce Springsteen. The film is said to have the full support of the Cash estate, and is a collaboration between Imperative Entertainment and executive producer Frank Marshall (Jurassic World).

“While the linear narrative of the Folsom Prison performances will anchor our film, each song in the set list will open a door into a nonlinear presentation of Cash’s emotional, musical and personal development,” said Zimny in a statement.

Johnny Cash was previously the subject of the critically acclaimed biopic, Walk The Line, starring Joaquin Phoenix as The Man In Black, with Reese Witherspoon taking on the role of Cash’s second wife, June Carter.

No release date for the documentary has been set at this time.
