We’ve been given little detail about this film’s release over the years, but finally we have an official trailer. Andre 3000 takes on the role of a lifetime starring as Jimi Hendrix in Jimi: All Is By My Side. Written and directed by John Ridley, the film covers a pivotal year in Hendrix’s life from the period of 1966-67. That was the year he went from being a virtually unknown backup guitarist, to making it big on London’s music scene, and eventually being on the verge of becoming a Rock legend.
Jimi: All Is By My Side will arrive in theaters September 26 and also stars Mogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, Burn Gorman and Ruth Negga.
