    I wonder who he'll get to play Jimi. I know Andre 3000 was talking up playing him awhile back. He has the look, but I don't know if he's got the chops.

    Andre 3000 does have a similar look, and he hasn't been terrible in movies i have seen, but it seems unlike Tarantino to hire someone like Andre 3000. I also have doubts about this report, it doesnt seem like Tarantino to be part of a project that he did not develop by himself.

    So what movie is this going to pay tribute to? The Doors? Maybe Spinal Tap? Walk the Line or Ray (they seem to recent)

    Interesting choice. Tarantino has so far only directed action movies. Granted, unconventional action movies but action movies all the same. But I think his use of snappy dialogue could serve a Hendrix biopic well.

    Me too. I actually wish he would have put off Grind House(which sounds cool) so he could make IB. It seems like the coolest movie, almost like Reservoir Dogs meets Saving Private Ryan.

    Yeah very interesting to get Tarantino involved. I think Andre Benjamin would be a good choice for Hendrix

    It's a Tarantino movie. Samuel L. Jackson will play Jimi. John travolta will have a cameo as Jim Morrison.

    Purple Haze Motherf**ker! In my brain!
    Does he look like the Lizard King?
    I said DOES HE LOOK LIKE THE LIZARD KING!

    It is NOT true at all - pure rumor. QT is NOT doing this project.

    The only biopic I'd like to see Tarantino tackle would be an Elvis movie. He'd do his life total justice.
