Big Boi and Andre 3000 are finally set to release the much anticipated follow up to Speakerboxx/The Love Below.

Outkast's upcoming album Idlewild is actually the soundtrack to the film that the duo will be starring in of the same name. The release date for both movie and album was pushed back before deciding on an August 22nd release for the album and an August 25th release date for the film.

The movie will be based in the 1930s at a Georgia speakeasy. According to E!Online the duo play, "Percival and Rooster, a club owner and his piano-playing partner who fend off gangsters while pursuing their dreams of show-biz success."

Also starring in the film are Ving Rhames, Ben Vereen, Cicely Tyson, Patti LaBelle and Macy Gray.

Meanwhile the album is set to drop its first single "Mighty-O" two weeks prior to Idlewild's (that's Idlewild the album) release.
