André 3000 of Outkast fame will hit the big screen as one of rock-and-roll's most legendary musicians later this year. The rapper is set to star as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side.
The film will be unveiled at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, which runs from September 5th to 15th. The listing on the film festival's official website also gives fans their first official glimpse of André as Hendrix.
Last year, Hendrix's estate released a statement saying they refused to grant permission to the All Is By My Side filmmakers to use any of Jimi's original music. According to Rollingstone.com, the film will instead feature André 3000 covering songs by artists such as the Beatles and Muddy Waters.
