OutKast's Andre 3000 is confirmed to portray Jimi Hendrix in a new Hollywood biopic, which is to be titled All Is By My Side.

According to ITFN, All Is By My Side will focus on Hendrix's period in England over 1966 and 1967 as he created his seminal debut album 'Are You Experienced'.

The film will be written and directed by John Ridley, who has previously penned the scripts for Three Kings and U-Turn. The project is currently in pre-production in Wicklow, with filming set to begin in three weeks time in Dublin and Wicklow. The shoot will last six weeks in total.

According to the report, the plot is set to take in the period in which Hendrix was discovered in a New York club by The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards' then girlfriend Linda Keith. Keith then introduced Hendrix to manager Chas Chandler, who brought him to London in 1966 to record 'Are You Experienced'.

Captain America actress Hayley Atwell has previously said that she had been approached to take part in a Hendrix biopic, but only the OutKast man is the only confirmed cast member thus far.
