Well I guess Andre 3000 has gone from Outkast to CASTed OUT! You may recall we earlier shared that sources close to the Atlanta rapper shared plans for him to play the legendary Jimi Hendrix in a biopic. Well, those dreams have been shot down by the late singers estate. In a statement they say,
“The estate of Jimi Hendrix has responded to rumours of a biopic being completed but confirm they are working on releasing more documentary footage.
Experience Hendrix, the group that administers the posthumous affairs of guitar icon Jimi Hendrix, have sent out a press release responding to media reports that a feature-length biopic of the man is nearing production.
Experience Hendrix say they have “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.”
That’s too bad because we believe that Andre would’ve been amazing in this role. Maybe the estate will reconsider and allow him to play so his fans can get into his life, and more importantly the new generation can see what this legend was all about!
