Hulton Archive/Getty ImagesJohnny Cash‘s famous 1968 concerts at Folsom State Prison in California will serve as the centerpiece for a new documentary, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will be produced by Imperative Entertainment and executive producer Frank Marshall (Jurassic World), with the full support of Johnny Cash’s estate. It will be directed by filmmaker Thom Zimny, who has helmed a number of Bruce Springsteen documentaries, as well as the upcoming HBO movie Elvis Presley: The Searcher.

Cash performed two shows at Folsom State Prison on January 13, 1968, and the performances were recorded for his triple-platinum live album At Folsom Prison.

“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,” reveals Zimny of the upcoming documentary.
