The film, which has been rumoured to be in the works for a while, is being directed by Three Kings and U-Turn screenwriter John Ridley, who also wrote the screenplay. It will focus on Hendrix's life in 1966-1967 when he was discovered in a New York club by Linda Keith, then girlfriend of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. The film will also cover the recording of Hendrix's debut album Are You Experienced?
