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.
