Hendrix movie moving forward

Casting

Ol Parker, the screenplay writer, will now direct Jimi, (formerly known as Crosstown Traffic), taking over for Paul Greengrass. The project fell apart in 2010 following objections from Hendrix’s estate over the script’s portrayal of the legendary rock star. Hendrix will be played by Anthony Mackie. Thandie Newton will co-star. Noomi Rapace is unconfirmed to Hendrix’s former girlfriend Kathy Etchingham.

Dies after party

Death

Hendrix dies after collapsing at a party in London. He was 27. Police say there is no question of foul play. A number of sleeping pills are found at the house in Notting Hill Gate and are taken away for analysis. Hendrix was in London since cutting short a European tour with his band after bass player Billy Cox fell ill with stress and exhaustion.
