Andre 3000 is preparing to rock the big screen in a new movie about the rock legend, as Jimi Hendrix.
It’s been in development for years now, but the flick, entitled ?All Is By My Side?? has finally gotten the greenlight and reportedly begins filming in Ireland later this month!
According a report published by The Irish Film & Television Network
?All Is By My Side? will document Hendrix?s period in England over 1966 and 1967 as he formulated his debut album and some of the greatest guitar music ever created. The feature film will be written and directed by John Ridley, who is best known as the writer of ?Three Kings? and ?U-Turn?.
The project is currently in pre-production in Wicklow, with principal photography set to begin in three weeks time in Dublin and Wicklow. The shoot will last six weeks in total.
?All Is By My Side? will be co-produced by Irish producer Tristan Orpen Lynch for Dublin-based production company Subotica Entertainment alongside ?Donnie Darko? director Richard Kelly?s Darko Entertainment and Britain?s Matador Pictures. The three companies will produce the movie under the banner of Watchtower Film Productions, with offices based out of Ardmore Studios.
