All Is By My Side, the upcoming biopic about Jimi Hendrix starring André Benjamin, better known as André 3000, has been in the works for a while, and now we finally have a trailer for it. The movie, directed by John Ridley who wrote 12 Years A Slave, was denied use of Hendrix’s original music by his family who are looking to make their own biopic.
From the short clip, it would appear that Benjamin, who looks a hell of a lot like Hendrix, has got the mannerisms of the rock n’ roll legend down pat. The movie is set in the year of 1966-67 when Hendrix shot to fame. The movie has been delayed and pushed back a few times over the past few years – whether this is a good or bad omen in this particular case remains to be seen.
