According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don Murphy's Angryfilms is getting together with Bellport Pictures' Carol Lewis to put together Slide.

The film will feature Jimi Hendrix and will be written and directed by R.H. Greene.

Slide chronicles Hendrix "lost weekend" in the late 1960s. The story centers around two gangsters who desperately try to get away from a mob boss that they double-crossed. They accidentally kidnap Hendrix, who was then at the height of his career and drug addiction. During the film, Hendrix teaches one of the gangsters about honesty, and he then cleans up his act.

Greene wrote "Incarnadine: The True Memoirs of Count Dracula," which just came out in September. He also wrote and directed Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies.

The producers are currently looking for actors and hope to start shooting next year.
