See André 3000 as Jimi Hendrix
In upcoming biopic 'All Is By My Side'.
Outkast's André 3000 (left) will play Jimi Hendrix (right) in upcoming biopic All Is By My Side, expected for release next year. The film is set in England during the late 60s, at the time when Jimi was recording his debut album Are You Experienced, which means it's probably going to feature sex, drugs and an amazing wardrobe. André 3000 will star alongside Imogen Poots and Hayley Atwell, while John Ridley, who worked on Three Kings and The Wanda Sykes Show, has written the screenplay and will also direct. Filming is underway in Ireland and will go on for the next six weeks.
Experience Hendrix LLC, the family-owned company that manages Jimi's estate, have said that they don't support the project. Rolling Stone reports that they released a statement reading "no such film, were it to include original music or copyrights created by Jimi Hendrix, can be undertaken without its full participation." That means there could be no original Hendrix jams in a movie that's about Hendrix jams! Either way, we're hoping we get to see André 3000 play the guitar with his teeth.
