Quaid here with some rare (for today) non-Avatar non-Wolfman news.
Other Hendrix projects in the past have run into problems on the legal front. The rights to Jimi’s life and music are held by “Experience Hendrix,” a group run by Jimi’s stepsister.
Regardless, plans are moving forward with Max Borenstein writing a script. For some reason, though, I won’t count this one as “real” until I hear that the potential legal pitfalls have been ironed out.
As for the idea of a Hendrix biopic? I have no strong feelings. I know the man’s music to some extent but not too much about his life. Let’s hope this one can rise above the general level of music biopics by finding a new take on the genre.
