The rumour mill at the moment is that OutKast’s Andre 3000 is set to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic film.
The film is rumoured to be set during the time that Hendrix spent in England in the 60′s.
In a statement from the Experience Hendrix Company they state:
Experience Hendrix CEO Janie L. 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.
A true biopic film about Hendrix with full backing from the estate would be very interesting indeed! You can read the full statement here
