Zooey Deschanel to be the Coal Miner's Daughter

We knew it was only time that everybody's quirky best friend who they don't actually know would end up on the Great White Way. Though reports say it's a "stage adaptation", not noting if it's a play or musical, Zooey Deschanel has been tapped to play Loretta Lynn, selected personally by the woman herself, in Coal Miner's Daughter based on the movie about Lynn. Personally, it seems like an odd choice, but I'm sure somewhere there's a reason. Thoughts?
