Update: Change of heart? No There are two Jimi Hendrix films being released! Anthony Mackie will play Jimi Hendrix in “Jimi” which will focus on his last days [allegedly]. While Andre 3000 will play Jimi Hendrix in John Ridley’s “All Is By My Side.”
Update: Whitney’s estate isn’t too happy about Lifetime’s choice to release a movie about her life on television, they believe that she deserves a biopic on the big screen.The estate may be planning a bigger film similar to Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” film. Hopefully this doesn’t lead to a lawsuit.
