After a lengthy period of anticipation, the long awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic starring Andre 3000 has finally received a release date.
Find out when you can see the upcoming biopic “Jimi: All Is By My Side” after the jump…
According to Vibe, the John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”) written and directed film will be released on June 13th in America and August 8th in the UK. Although details about the release are scarce, it seems as if the film could make a debut in theaters as opposed to a television release of sorts.
For years, there have been rumors of a new Jimi Hendrix biopic and it was finally shot last year in Dublin. The news means there’s steam in the engine to get this movie out for the world to see. Variety reported a week ago that the film was chosen to open The Seattle Film Festival on May 15th.
By the looks of the trailer, it’s shaping up to be one special project. We’re officially excited.
