I’m sure you remember a few weeks back we reported that Andre 3000 was supposed to play Jimi Hendrix in his biopic. Well it turns that Andre 3000 will NOT be playing Jimi Hendrix and its because of the owners of Jimi Hendrix’s estate. Hendrix’s estate has issues a statement saying:
â€œThe estate of Jimi Hendrix has responded to rumors of a biopic being completed but confirm they are working on releasing more documentary footage.
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 of the man is nearing production.
Experience Hendrix say they have â€œmade 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.â€
Well there you have it folks. The film will not be starring Andre 3000 which is too bad because I’m sure that Andre would have done an awesome job reflecting on the acting job that he did in Idlewild.
