(ANI): Director R.H. Greene wants to start his new movie about Jimi
Hendrix in early 2010 but he's yet to find an actor to portray the
music legend. The movie, titled Slide, is based on an alleged bogus
kidnapping attempt on the rocker.
It is said that Hendrix's manager, Michael Jeffrey, paid a New
York gang to kidnap the guitar great, so he could 'rescue' him and
prove how indispensable he was to the guitar legend. "While we have
to be speculative because no definitive version of the event
exists, this takes it out of the realm of fiction for me," Contactmusic quoted Greene as telling TwentyFourBit.com.
“It's part of Jimi's story, and I think it offers an opportunity
to show him fully but from a unique angle. That was my aim in
writing it, and that's going to be my aim in making it," Greene
