After years of production problems and battles over the rights to use Jimi Hendrix's music in the movie. Things have finally been settled and Andre 3000 will finally get to be Jimi Hendrix in the new Hollywood movie. The movie is set to begin filming next month in Ireland and will last six weeks total.
IFTN understands that '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. (IFTN)
