Andre 3000 Is Set For Jimi Hendrix Role

People

Andre 3000 from Outkast is said to have attained the role of Jimi Hendrix in a new Hollywood biopic to be titled All Is By My Side.

As one of hip hops most known artist, Andre 3000 knows what it’s like to live life in the music world and try to stay grounded in the regular world.

The IFTN report says that the film will concentrate on Hendrix’ life in London during 1966 and 1967 and is scheduled to begin filming next month in Ireland.

John Ridley, is writing the script and production is being shared by Subotica Entertainment, Darko Entertainment and Matador Pictures.

Andre 3000, is one half of the famous hip hop group OutKast with Antwan “Big Boi” Patton. They were able to bring a new sound into the music world and change hip hop as they explored more creative avenues for music.

They hit number 1 in the U.S. with Ms. Jackson (2000), Hey Ya! (2003) and The Way You Move (2003) as did their album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Andre 3000 has previously acted in the movies Hollywood Homicide, Be Cool, Four Brothers and Idlewild along with TV series Class of 3000 and The Shield.

Thus far he has made quite an impression every time he sets foot in the big screen, so I can only imagine that he will play the role to perfection.
