Another Hendrix Movie In The Works is reporting that a few months ago, Legendary Pictures announced that they would produce a movie devoted to iconic guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Today, The Hollywood Reporter writes that Angryfilms and Bellport announced another Hendrix-themed project.

Slide will be a fictional dramatization of the infamous "lost weekend" in 1969. The urban legend is that Hendrix was kidnapped as part of a stunt orchestrated by his manager. The story for Silde, however, will see two mobsters mistakenly apprehend Hendrix while they're on the run from their duped boss.

The writer-director for the project is Ray "R.H." Greene, who wrote Incarnadine: The True Memoirs of Count Dracula and directed Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies. Hendrix's music won't play much of a part in the movie; instead, Hendrix will fraternize with the mobsters and correct his drug problems in the process, according to THR.

Past screen adaptations of the left-handed virtuoso's life include Hendrix, a 2000 made-for-TV movie, and the 1973 rockumentary Jimi Hendrix, which contains clips from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival in addition to those from Woodstock.
