Jimi Hendrix Biopic Starring Andre 3000 to Start Filming Next Month

In October we announced that OutKast’s Andre 3000 was in talks to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic for the legendary guitarist.

Today IFTN announced filming for the biopic is set to begin in Ireland later this month. Titled All Is By My Side, the film will document Hendrix’s life in England during 1966-67. The film is set to be directed by U-Turn and Three Kings’ writer John Ridley.

The film will follow Hendrix’s introduction to manager Chas Chandler, who brought Hendrix to London to record his debut album, Are You Experienced.

The OutKast frontman also recently finished a collaboration with Gorillaz, which you can listen to here.
