Legendary Plans Jimi Hendrix Biopic

Legendary Pictures is currently developing a feature film biopic about Jimi Hendrix says Variety.

Legendary hopes to crack the rights issues that have prevented previous Hendrix projects from getting out of the gate and will develop the project first, then try to win the cooperation of the musician’s estate.

Legendary has been in loose discussions with the estate, but there is as yet no firm rights deal, which would be needed to access Hendrix’s singular sound and guitar wizardry.

Max Borenstein (“What Is Life Worth?”) is penning the fact-based script while Bill Gerber and Thomas Tull will produce.
