Hendrix Movie Starting Production

Talk of a Jimi Hendrix biopic has been off-and-on for years, but it finally appears that a firm plan is in place to begin making the biopic late this month in Ireland.  Andre Benjamin, better known as Andree 300 of the Rap duo Outkast, will have the lead role in a movie being co-produced by three film companies.  The film is said to be concentrating on the early period of the meteoric career of the Seattle guitarist that Chas Chandler, bass player with the Animals convinced to return to England with him so he could have Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and others hear him play.  That jaw dropping club appearance led immediately to the studio sessions that produced the ground breaking debut album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
