Andre 3000 becomes Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side. Last year, a photographer was able to snag a couple of photos from the set which were leaked and now SPIN has obtained the first still from the film, which was shot in Dublin, Ireland. Fast forwarding over a year later, images from the film has been unveiled on the Toronto International Film Festival’s official site.
The movie follows Hendrix in the years prior to his fame and co-stars Hayley Atwell, who plays Linda Keith, the woman who discovered the late rock star in New York’s Cheetah Club in 1966.
Hendrix’s estate did not grant producers the right to his original music. Consequentially the film will feature Andre 3000 performing covers of songs by the Beatles — Hendrix famously performed “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” in a London club with members of the Fab Four in attendance — Elvis Presley, Muddy Waters and Elmore James.
André spoke to SPIN about playing such a legendary musician on the big screen,
“In researching him, I saw a lot of the paths that he went down were the same ones that I went down when I was a young kid. He did what he thought was right for his music. I always gravitated towards him. … This movie is the real s— right here. I think people will learn things they didn’t know
“All Is By My Side” will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September (the fest’s full schedule will be revealed on August 20)
