Jimi Movie Not Happening

A biopic of Jimi Hendrix is not going to happen.

The movie was expected to be directed by Oscar-nominated Paul Greengrass and star Anthony Mackie, who had a leading role in “The Hurt Locker.”

The picture went belly up because Experience Hendrix, gatekeeper to the musician’s music rights, refused to authorize the film out of fear it would hurt the music catalog, according to Deadline Hollywood.
