R.H. Greene is writing and will direct the indie road movie drama “Slide” for Angryfilms and Bellport Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Set in the late 1960s, the story revolves around two gangsters, desperately trying to get away from a mob boss they double-crossed, who inadvertently kidnap Jimi Hendrix who was then at the height of his career and drug addiction.
Along the way, Hendrix ends up teaching one of the gangsters about honesty, and Hendrix learns to clean up his act. The project will not use Hendrix’s music nor feature his family.
Don Murphy and Carol Lewis will produce.
