Jewel is set to follow in Reese Witherspoon's footsteps by portraying country music legend June Carter in a new TV movie.
Witherspoon walked away with an Oscar for her portrayal of Johnny Cash's second wife in 2005's Walk the Line biopic and now the Who Will Save Your Soul singer will get her chance to take on the role in The June CarterCash Story for U.S. TV network Lifetime.
Executive Rob Sharenow says, "Many people know about the legendary lovestory of Johnny and June, but June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses.
"This movie will explore all aspects of the woman behind the icon, and we're thrilled Jewel willbe playing the role".
American Horror Story actor Matt Ross will play Cash in the movie, which will chronicle the couple's tumultuous relationship as well as her riseto fame, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project will be based on John Carter Cash's memoir Anchored in Love An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash.
He will also serve as an executive producer.
