Hendrix biopic still ago without Jimi's estate blessing
Many have sought to make a movie about Jimi Hendrix's life, and earlier this week, screenwriter John Ridley made his intentions known to put one into production with Andre 3000 starring as the late guitarist.
However, as is their custom, the Hendrix estate sent out a strongly worded press release reminding press that no movie can actually feature the musician's work or copyrights without their consent.
"Experience Hendrix, LLC, the family-owned company entrusted with safeguarding the legacy of Jimi Hendrix and administrator of the Jimi Hendrix music and publishing catalog has made it known many times in the past that no such film, were it to include original music or copyrights created by Jimi Hendrix, can be undertaken without its full participation."
However, they didn't completely close the door on the possibility of a film like "All Is By My Side" getting made.
"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."
Darko Entertainment, Subotica Entertaiment and Matador Pictures are still planning on making the film. Haley Atwell and Imogen Poots will co-star.
