Oh no...Andre 3000 has not been able to get the rights to Jimi's music from the Hendrix Estate to make a Jimi Hendrix movie says ContactMusic.
Andre fears the Hendrix biopic will remain unmade because movie-makers will never gain the rights to use the guitar great's songs. He says, "I've heard that Will Smith wanted to do it (the film) at one time, Laurence Fishburne; Eddie Murphy had wanted to do it in the beginning of his career. There's been a lot of scripts to try to make it happen, but nothing can go on. I can go and make a Hendrix film right now, but I could not use any Hendrix songs that he wrote in the film."
I was looking forward to the movie, but honestly Andre 3000 can't really play guitar and I think that is vital to whoever plays the role, not that it mattered for Jamie Foxx's portrayal of Ray Charles. Anyway, the world probably isn't ready for a Hendrix movie that kicks butt! Maybe in 30 more years.
