Andre 3000’s Jimi Hendrix Biopic Begins

Hey ya! After much speculation, IFTN confirms that Andre 3000 will play Jimi Hendrix in the legendary guitarist’s biopic, All Is By My Side and that it will begin production in Ireland later this month.

The project is currently in pre-production in Wicklow, with principal photography set to begin in three weeks time in Dublin and Wicklow. The shoot will last six weeks in total.

‘All Is By My Side’ will be co-produced by Irish producer Tristan Orpen Lynch for Dublin-based production company Subotica Entertainment alongside ‘Donnie Darko’ director Richard Kelly’s Darko Entertainment and Britain’s Matador Pictures. The three companies will produce the movie under the banner of Watchtower Film Productions, with offices based out of Ardmore Studios.

    Who really cares about this movie. None of us listen to any rock music. Especially rock from the 1960’s.

    @earlj3

    I listen to multiple genres of music from multiple eras, you should expand your palette.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    @earlj3. You sir are a flagrant idiot.

  • http://aol.com Hypebeast Killer

    Kid Cudi would make a good role as Basquiat in a movie about him

    If you like Andre3000, you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It’s a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives and a few songs that matter to them. Pretty powerful stuff. Check’em out here:

    @Static Cudi is also an actor, and he’s actually the closest to looking like Hendrix.

  • @Bigg Homie Locc Dogg

    That’s obviously not a picture from the movie, fool; it says very clearly in the article that it hasn’t even started shooting yet. That’s Andre playing guitar as Andre 3000, not Jimi Hendrix.

  • @Los

    Cudi’s not like a REAL actor tho. He’s had one supporting role in an unsuccessful TV show, and the director came out and said Cudi didn’t really play a role, he just acts like Domingo all the time. So there’s no way I would hand over the legacy of Jimi Hendrix to some amateur just because he dressed up like him in a music video once, ESPECIALLY after I just had the misfortune of finding out what his idea of rock and roll is.

  • YOU CAN’T KILL ME

    WHO THE FUCK IS THIS WACK NIGGA? KID CUDI>>>>>>>>>>>>

    WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  • uh

    I don’t think Cudi should actually play the lead, but he should at least get a cameo considering all the homage he’s paid Hendrix

  • lilrizq

    Andre be in space on yall niggas man,lol. he’s always on some otherworld sh– when he grinds, Badu turned him out mos def… now look at this performance video i edited for my friend. Soulja Boy at (2:32).
