Contradicting news surrounding the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is by My Side starring Andre 3000 emerge. While Three Stacks has reportedly arrived in Ireland to prepare himself for the demanding role, various sources indicate that the whole project has not been authorized by the late musician’s estate. Representatives of Jimi Hendrix’s estate have condemned plans for the movie, accusing the filmmakers of moving forward with the project without gaining official permission. A statement from Experience Hendrix, LLC, reads:

“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 catalogue, 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.”

A representative for Andre 3000 didn’t immediately respond to a request for a comment. Stay tuned as things surrounding this issue are likely to get clarified real soon.
