The Andre 3000 starring movie may now not happen
Earlier this week it was reported that a new movie called All Is By My Side was due to start production in the coming months, with rapper Andre 3000 taking the lead role.
However, it seems that the Hendrix estate may put a stop to the film before it even kicks off.
In a statement Jimi's sister, Janie, who is the CEO of Experience Hendrix said in a statement: "Various media outlets have recently published accounts that indicate a feature-length biographical film is nearing production.
"Experience Hendrix LLC, the family-owned company entrusted with safeguarding the legacy of Jimi Hendrix, and administrator of the music and publishing catalogue, 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.
"The board have not ruled out a ‘biopic’ in the future, although producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such project if it is to include Jimi Hendrix music or compositions.”
