Andre 3000 may play guitar legend Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming biopic.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Mr. ‘Three Stacks’ but it looks like he’s back — and on the silver screen? The hip-hop pioneer may play guitar legend Jimi Hendrix in a forthcoming biopic, Esquire Magazine reports.
In a recent Esquire interview, actress Hayley Atwell said she may co-star in the film alongside 3000. “Next up is possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic — an independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix,” Atwell told Esquire. “But I don’t know, really. The Atwell team is like, ‘Let’s just wait and see.'”
In other Andre news, the rapper is reportedly working on a new Outkast album slated for release in 2012. The album would feature solo projects from both Dre and Big Boi, HipHopwired.com reports.
For our sake, we hope the rumors are true. You have alot of loyal fans out here Andre!
