DETAILS: It’s Confirmed: Andre 3000 Will Star In Jimi Hendrix Biopic!
Darko Entertainment announced that Andre 3000 will play Jimi, and they have implied that the movie will feature original music, as opposed to the deceased singer’s hit songs because of licensing issues.
A spokesman of the Experience Hendrix estate told Deadline:
“To the best of our knowledge, this production never approached Experience Hendrix about licensing the music.”
MUSIC: Gorillaz Featuring Andre 3000 & James Murphy “DoYaThing”
The film is set to start it’s production later this month in Ireland and 3 Stacks has already been spotted out in Ireland getting ready for his role as the legendary rock star.
Do you think Andre will be able to capture Jimi’s vibe?
