Outkast's Andre 3000 will sing songs by The Beatles when he plays Jimi Hendrix in the forthcoming film All Is By My Side.
As the film is unofficial, Andre (real name Andre Benjamin) will be unable to perform any songs by Hendrix himself. To compensate the plan is to use music from around the period of the story, which looks at when Hendrix arrived in London in the 1960's.
As well as The Beatles song 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band', the on-screen Hendrix will also perform Willie Thronton's 'Hound Dog' and 'Wild Thing' by The Wild Ones.
Songs by Muddy Waters will also be included in All Is By My Side.
The film is currently shooting in Dublin, Ireland and will be released in 2013.
