We heard recently that Andre 3000 was on his way to start filming a Jimi Hnedrix bio-pic. But Jimi’s estate is trying to shut it down.
They released a statement saying:
“Various media outlets have recently published accounts that indicate a feature-length Jimi Hendrix biographical film is nearing production.
“Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi Hendrix, and the EH board have not ruled out a ‘biopic’ in the future though producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such film project if it is to include original Jimi Hendrix music or compositions.” Source
Ah damn. I was looking forward to this.
