Outkast's Andre 3000 has been snapped in his Jimi Hendrix consume as he films a forthcoming biopic about the late guitarist.
Entertainmentwise managed to catch a glimpse of the rapper in Dublin where the film is being shot, as he appeared from his dressing room with a full Hendrix-style afro.
The film titled "All Is By My Side" pushed ahead with production before getting permission from the Hendrix estate to use his music. The movie centers around the recording of the classic 1967 album "Are You Experienced?"
"[We] have not ruled out a 'biopic' in the future though producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such film project if it is to include original Jimi Hendrix music or compositions," said the estate upon news of the film.
It is unclear whether a deal has been reached with the Hendrix estate, but the production company could be skipping out on those royalty fees by recording its own soundtrack.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Chickenfoot drummer Kenny Aronoff took part in an "intense" two day Hendrix recording session for the film score. Could they be cutting the Hendrix family out of any royalties?
Andre 3000 has previously appeared in movies including "Be Cool", "Four Brothers" and "Semi-Pro".
