    Hendrix movie with no Hendrix music.

    http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/thats-really-week/may-7-14-jimi-hendrix-biopic-starring-andre-165705843.html


    That's Really Week was excited to hear that Andre "Andre 3000" Benjamin would be portraying the late Jimi Hendrix in a biopic, "All Is By My Side." The long-anticipated film to be produced by Darko Entertainment, Subotica Entertainment and Matador Pictures will reportedly begin production in Ireland this month.
    There's just one problem. According to Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., the company that controls the rights to Hendrix's catalog, the movie may not include any of Hendrix's original recordings.

    On Wednesday, Experience Hendrix responded to reports about the film. "Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., 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," the company said in a statement posted on its website.

    The statement added the estate is open to a working on a movie about Hendrix's life, but only if producers agree to its terms. "Experience Hendrix CEO Janie L. 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."

    Hendrix's music was not used in the 2000 Showtime film "Hendrix" starring Wood Harris as the legendary rock star.
    The movie to be directed by John Ridley, who also wrote the original screenplay, will be based on Hendrix interviews and archive materials, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    Andre 3000, half of the hip hop duo OutKast, has also appeared in the movies "Idlewild," "Be Cool" and "Four Brothers."

            They could put him in whiteface and make it the Stevie Ray Vaughn story.

                They'll end up with funky I IV V jams with a studio Hendrix impersonator playing like Hendrix on top of it as Andre does the miming. Just like in the last lame movie. If they're lucky Dylan will let them do "Along The Watch Tower." Or they'll get "Hey Joe."

                              I doubt it. It's about being compensated for the use of your product. I'm not saying Janie is business genius but at least they're not door mats.
