Some details on André 3000's long-gestating Jimi Hendrix project, courtesy of an Irish news service: All by My Side, a John Ridley–penned biopic about Hendrix's 1966–1967 "breakthrough period," is set to begin production in a few weeks. André will star, according to IFTN, and a good chunk of the movie will be filmed in Ireland. So, County Wicklow readers, you are officially on 3 Stacks Alert. Please report any and all sightings.
