A few months ago, news broke about a bio-pic for Jimi Hendrix being in the works. There were rumors of Andre 3000 starring in the film, as Hendrix. Both Hendrix and Andre 3000 are known for their eccentric styles. If there was one current figure cast to portray Jimi Hendrix, many felt Andre 3000 should be the person.
In recent months, rumors about both the film and Andre 3000 have died down. Andre 3000 briefly spoke about being in the studio. Still on a bit of a hiatus, Andre 3000 is finally working on his debut solo album and denied the Outkast album. While recording new music, Andre 3000 has fallen out of the spotlight.
As Andre 3000 was slipping from memory and the Jimi Hendrix bio-pic was forgotten by many, official news has been released. The Jimi Hendrix bio-pic is in the works, with filming starting in Ireland. Andre 3000 has been cast in the leading role of Jimi Hendrix, as many already guessed.
