First Look: André 3000 as Jimi Hendrix for Biopic

  • Posted 63 months Ago

After several photos were leaked from the set, we've now been given a first glimpse of musician André 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side. The film focusses on the years before Hendrix made it big, but won't feature any original Hendrix recordings due to his estate's refusal. Instead, the Outkast-member will sing covers of the tracks. Speaking about the film early last year, André said: "In researching him, I saw that a lot of the paths that he went down where the same ones that I went down when I was a young kid. He did what he thought was right for his music. I always gravitated towards him. This movie is the real shit right here. I think people will learn things they didn't know." All Is By My Side will premiere at Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2013.
