Andre 3000 Set To Play Jimi Hendrix In Biopic!
André 3000 is set to star in All Is by My Side, the long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic, according to the Irish Film and Television Network. IFTN reports that the film is currently in preproduction in Wicklow, Ireland, and that the shoot will last six weeks.
The film will reportedly explore Hendrix's early career, tracking his times spent in England in 1966 and 1967 crafting what would become his classic debut album, Are You Experienced. John Ridley, writer of 1999's Three Kings and 1997's U Turn, is set to write and direct.
The last time we saw Andre on film was in 2008, on the FX show The Shield and he also did his thing in Four Brothers and Semi-Pro.
