Trailer: Andre 3000 Plays Hendrix In ‘Jimi: All Is By My Side’

Still no actual Jimi Hendrix music in the film, but it’s written by the same guy that wrote 12 Years A Slave. Available in theaters on September 26, 2014.

OutKast’s André Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in this revealing biopic from Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (12 Years A Slave). Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.
