After much speculation, it’s been confirmed that Outkast native Andre 3000 will be playing rock legend Jimi Hendrix in a biopic of his life, scheduled to start filming later this month in Ireland.
According to Irish Film & Television Network reports, the film will be titled All Is By My Side, and will document Hendrix’s period in England over 1966 and 1967 as he formulated his debut album Are You Experienced. The film is set to be written and directed by John Ridley, known for Three Kings and U-Turn. fame.
