Jimi Hendrix Estate Vs Biopic

Earlier this week a report originated out of Ireland that a new biopic of Jimi Hendrix was being planned and would star Outkast's Andre 3000. But now the Hendrix estate has issued a statement making clear they are not involved in any such film and have not given permission for it. Here is what they had to say:

Various media outlets have recently published accounts that indicate a feature length Jimi Hendrix biographical film is nearing production. Experience Hendrix, LLC, the family-owned company entrusted with safeguarding the legacy of Jimi Hendrix and administrator of the Jimi Hendrix music and publishing catalog has 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.

Experience Hendrix CEO Janie 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.
