Andre 3000 has reportedly resurfaced as the lead in an upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic. The film has been in the works for years with the reclusive rapper named as the star, but the project has run into problems and was reportedly stalled indefinitely.
Nonetheless, it looks like the film now has the green light again and details have emerged about the project's plot and title.
Called All Is By My Side, the film focuses on the legendary guitarists' life just as he was becoming a star in England after transplanting there to pursue a recording career, having failed to land a deal in America. The film is being written and directed by John Ridley.
The film will shoot in Ireland this summer.
