Two upcoming features, based on rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix are in the works, including screenwriter Max Borenstein's take for Legendary Pictures, hoping for authorization from the Hendrix Estate.

In addition, producers Don "Shoot 'Em Up" Murphy and Carol Lewis are developing a 'fictional' account of what happened during Jimi Hendrix' 'lost weekend', when his manager orchestrated a hoax kidnapping.

The 2000 TV Movie "Hendrix", shot by director Leon Ichaso in Toronto was nominated for a primetime Emmy, starring Wood Harris, Billy Zane and Vivica A. Fox. The film chronicled Hendrix' early career, focusing on his move from the Us to England becoming friends with producer 'Chas Chandler' who teamed him up with bandmates Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding to form the Experience.

Sneak Peek's Michael Stevens had the opportunity of playing 'Jimi's Roadie' in the film, as a member of the band's entourage.
