According to the Irish Film & TV Network Andre 3000 is set to play Jimi Hendrix in a film called All Is By My Side. The movie will cover the time period Hendrix spent in England from 1966-1967. There is no word on how they will handle the music half of the production because we all know that Janie Hendrix is not giving permission to anyone to use Hendrix’s name unless of course it’s for the Hendrix diaper covers and air freshner she sells on the official site. It is sad that it has taken this long to get so little. Hendrix deserves a movie of his whole life and Andre 3000 should have been able to do it when they tried to do it before. If there is anything Jimi Hendrix wanted it was for Black people to embrace his music. And having a rapper like Andre 3000 play him is ideal but no Hendrix story can work without the official music and this is part of the reason why the film with Wood Harris and Vivica Fox didn’t have much power.
