We’ve all been aching to see Andre 3000’s long-awaited portrayal of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix in All Is By My Side. Leaked photos have made their way around the internet, but now we’ve gotten an official shot from the forthcoming film, set to make its debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival in September.
Although there won’t be any of Hendrix’s original music in the film due to approval issues from Hendrix’s estate, Andre will be covering songs from The Beatles, Muddy Waters and various other influences from the artist’s career. All Is By My Side follows Hendrix’s career from 1966-1967, leading up to the recording of his debut album Are You Experienced?.
Andre stars in the film alongside Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Burn Gorman and Ashley Charles. All Is By My Side was written and directed by John Ridley (12 Years A Slave).
