Last year we learned that OutKast’s André 3000 was set to play the iconic Jimi Hendrix in a new biopic revealed to be titled, All Is By My Side. A major setback to this film is that the late guitarist’s estate denied the film the rights to use Hendrix’s music producers had to work around that. Apparently, the film focuses on Jimi’s year in London and his rise to fame there. The people behind the movie have shared a short clip in which you see Hendrix attempting to convince the model Linda Keith, played by Imogen Poots, to come to the Monterey Pop Festival with him.
All Is By My Side will premier at the SXSW Film Festival tomorrow night, March 7. See the clip above.
