A Glimpse Of The Jimi Hendrix Biopic
Andre Benjamin (AKA Andre 3000 of Outkast) plays rock legend Jimi Hendrix in the first trailer for the forthcoming biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side (above).
It’s impossible to tell from this glimpse how much the film will suffer from its lack of actual Hendrix recordings. (the production was unable to secure the rights from the late musician’s estate.) As good as Benjamin may be, when you can’t include the very thing that made a biopic worth doing in the first place, you’ve got a serious hurdle to overcome.
The film is set for release September 26, 2014. MORE HERE & HERE
