According to Billboard, the Jimi Hendrix biopic starring André 3000 and directed by John Ridley, All Is By My Side, will make its US debut at this year’s SXSW. André 3000 was cast as Hendrix in 2012, and filmed the movie that year in Ireland. The movie follows Hendrix in the UK during two years preceding his major fame, 1966 and 1967.
The film was first shown last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will be released around Europe and Russia this Summer. No US release has been announced.
