The long anticipated Jimi Hendrix biopic is almost here. Last year we were treated with a few candid shots of André 3000 in a full Hendrix outfit on set. After a year of speculation we finally have our first official look at André as Hendrix thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival’s official website.
The biopic, written and directed by John Ridley, is called All Is By My Side. The film focuses on the legendary guitarist’s years in London, shortly before the release of his Are You Experienced album. The only downside is that the Hendrix estate has disapproved the usage of any Hendrix songs in the film. Instead, Three Stacks will be performing covers of songs by the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Muddy Waters and Elmore James. Not bad for a plan B!
All Is By My Side will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and you can learn more about the film on the festival’s official site.
