Andre 3000 To Shoot Jimi Hendrix Biopic "All Is By My Side" In Ireland

Andre 3000 will star in a biopic of the rock legend's life, contrary to prior reports.

Andre 3000 is slated to play Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All is By My Side, scheduled to begin shooting later this month in Ireland.

According to IFTN, the film is slated to be written and directed by John Ridley, best known for helming the scripts for Three Kings and U-Turn. 

The biopic will focus on Hendrix's period in England between 1966 and 1967 when he began work on his debut album. It will cover the period when he was discovered in a New York club and was introduced to manager Chas Chandler, who brought him to London in '66 to record Are You Experienced.

Last July, news broke that Three Stacks would play Hendrix in a biopic, but the news was subsequently squashed after the Experience Hendrix estate put a block on the film moving forward. They confirmed that a documentary was on the way, but it appears that they’ve gone back on their initial decision to allow the Outkast member to star in the biopic.
