    An apparently long-gestating Jimi Hendrix biopic starring OutKast's Andre 3000 as the guitar god may very well be on the horizon. The musician told EW all the way back in 2004 that he would be portraying Hendrix, but nothing ever materialized.

    However, actress Hayley Atwell told Esquire that she will be taking on a Hendrix biopic as her next project, which leads a lot of media sources to wonder if this is the same biopic that Andre 3000 spoke of over seven years ago. You never know!

    Who do you think should play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic? Is Andre 3000 a good choice?
