While earlier this week, news shook the web that a new OutKast album could be on the horizon, it now appears that Andre 3000 could be set to take the lead role in a new Jimi Hendrix biopic. As NME points out, English actress Hayley Atwell revealed that the great lyricist is in talks to star in a biopic alongside herself, about the late guitar legend.
“[I'm] possibly [starring in] a Jimi Hendrix biopic — an independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix,” she told Esquire magazine. “But I don’t know, really.”
Rumors that Andre 3000 would star as Mr. Hendrix have been floating around for a few years already, so chances are that this might become reality. Stay tuned.
