Andre 3000 - Is He Experienced? Andre 3000 To Play Jimi Hendrix In Biopic

It has been announced that Andre 3000, the Outkast rapper, will be playing the role of Jimi Hendrix in a biopic about the legendary guitarist's life. The Irish Film and Television Network announced the news and also revealed that the movie - entitled 'All Is By My Side' - will be filmed in Ireland.
The movie is understood to be documenting the period of time that Jimi Hendrix spent in England, recording his debut album, entitled 'Are You Experienced?' during 1966 and 1967. 'All Is By My Side' will mark the directorial debut of John Ridley, who is known for writing 'Three Kings' and 'U-Turn.' Currently in pre-production in Wicklow, it is expected that some of the filming will take place in London and it's thought that the shoot will take around six weeks in total. The Irish Film and Television Network also understand that "locations penciled in to be used include Bray Head Hotel; the John Player Cigarette Factory on South Circular Road; Bray itself; a number of nightclubs in Bray, Dun Laoghaire and various other locations around Dublin."
Andre 3000, whose real name is Andre Benjamin is one half of the hip-hop dup Outkast, best known for their hits 'Hey Ya' and 'Ms Jackson.' Outkast themselves haven't released an album since 2006's 'Idlewild' though Andre has kept himself busy acting in movies such as 'Be Cool', 'Four Brothers' and 'Semi-Pro.'
