Andre 3000 FILMS Jimi Hendrix Biopic + Ne-Yo & Jamie Foxx PARTY In Las Vegas
Andre 3000 is over in Dublin filming the Jimi Hendrix biopic. Get deets on the film and see Ne-Yo and Jamie Foxx hosting a pool party in Las Vegas.
Andre Benjamin aka Andre 3000 (who celebrated his 38th birthday yesterday) began filming All Is by My Side, a Jimi Hendrix biopic, today in Dublin, Ireland.
Andre 3000 wants fans to be surprised by the film so he avoided photos so everything will be fresh when it hits the screen.
But when it hits the screen, don't expect to hear Jimi's original music. Apparently, the estate is not on board with the biopic. The estate released a statement saying,
"Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi Hendrix, and the EH board have not ruled out a 'biopic' in the future though producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such film project if it is to include original Jimi Hendrix music or composition."
Andre 3000 will likely have to record covers of all Jimi songs used in the film. But hey.....isn't that what we wanted anyway?
And in Las Vegas...........
Yesterday, Ne-Yo hosted Beach Life's Rehab Pool in the Hard Rock Hotel.
He tweeted, Chill day in my hometown Vegas, sipping @Malibu_Red at Rehab Pool. Life is good! #Compound - R.E.D 9/18/12
He also paraded around with a bevy of beauties and got the crowd hyped.
Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx was the party's other host and he also hyped the crowd.
