After being stuck in limbo for a period of time, the biopic of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix is now officially in pre-production. The film will star OutKast rapper André 3000, and it will document the guitarist's time in England from when he recorded his classic debut album Are You Experienced.

Currently, the film's progress is set in Wicklow, Ireland, where principal photography will be taking place in three weeks time in Dublin and Wicklow. The director of the film will be John Ridley, who formerly wrote the scripts for U-Turn and Three Kings.
