We’ve heard nothing but buzz and rumors about Andre 3000 of Outkast stepping up to the film plate and taking on the role of the late Jimi Hendrix. Well, now the time has come where we finally get to see Andre suited, booted and ‘fro’ed up as the late rock legend.

Now that we have a visual, all that’s left is the bio film itself. The movie will be titled All By My Side and according to MTV:
“All Is By My Side” will make its world premiere at TIFF in September (the fest’s full schedule will be revealed on August 20), and focuses on the legendary guitarist’s years in London, shortly before the release of his Are You Experienced album. Sadly, it won’t feature any actual Hendrix songs, as his estate refused to grant producers the rights to his material.
We can’t wait for Andre to bring that “Purple Haze” to the big screen.
