OutKast star Andre 3000 is developing a new cartoon with the Cartoon Network in the US.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Andre and the cable channel are working on a half-hour special for the Cartoon Network's 'Adult Swim' slot; if both are happy with the results, a series will be greenlighted.

It is reported that the cartoon is expected to be inspired by Andre's life or will feature his alter ego Johnny Vulture from OutKast's 'Hey Ya!' video.

The singer is also expected to contribute music to the project.

Andre will next be seen in 'Be Cool', the sequel to hit movie 'Get Shorty', and is also set to star in a Jimi Hendrix biopic for the Hughes brothers, whose previous credits include 'From Hell' and 'Menace II Society'.
