Family say that a biopic is NOT in production
Experience Hendrix, the group that administers the posthumous affairs of guitar icon Jimi Hendrix, have sent out a press release responding to media reports that a feature-length biopic is nearing production.
Experience Hendrix say they have "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."
Hendrix's sister Janie, who is the CEO of Experience Hendrix, does confirm that more documentary footage is in the works.
She says, 'With Sony Legacy, our partner, we are active in releasing documentary material starring, so to speak, Jimi Hendrix as himself and plan to continue on this path."
