    Jimi: All Is by My Side (new Jimi Hendrix bio-pic)

    I remember when I heard that Andre 3000 was cast as Hendrix, I was so stoked cuz I thought he looked just like him. Dang, they nailed it:

    Was already looking forward to this, but even more so now.

    EDIT: Hmm, now I'm reading that they couldn't get any of the rights to his music, that just sucks:

    The film will not include any songs written by Hendrix, as the filmmakers' request to use them was denied by Experience Hendrix LLC (Hendrix's estate). Instead, the film – set in London in 1966 and 1967 – will include the songs that Hendrix performed during those years, shortly before the release of his debut album, Are You Experienced.

    The film has caused controversy as several of Hendrix's friends, including Kathy Etchingham, have vocally decried the film as largely fictitious. This includes scenes depicting a fictionalized Hendrix violently and repeatedly beating Etchingham (played by Hayley Atwell). In interviews given recently, Etchingham describes Hendrix as a gentle man, and the time she spent with him some of the best years of her life.
