Don Cheadle To Portray Miles Davis



I want to tell a story that Miles himself would have wanted to see, something hip, cool, alive and AHEAD.
I’ve taken my marching orders from Miles’ mandates (“Play what’s not there.” “Fear no mistakes. There are none.”) and focused in on a very specific point in his life to explore his relationship with his muse, his voice, his fears and challenges to come out of his silent period and return to the music. I'm hopefully making a movie that tells a story many people can relate to, jazz fan or not.
MILES AHEAD is not just about the music. It’s about what we all face at one time or another in our lives; questions about who we really are, what we have to say and how will we say it. How will we ultimately be defined and who gets to say so?
Don Cheadle To Portray Miles Davis

As indicated in the link, this movie's being crowdfunded so that Don can control everything without studio interference.

Should be a great flick; can't wait to see it. Now I have to decide how much I want to invest...

This sounds damned exciting. Miles is without question, my favorite jazz artist of all time and Cheadle is a great actor. I wish the movie would cover his entire life, though I know that can't be, because I'd LOVE to see his days with Bird and forming his first great bands, etc.

I migh just kick in some cash for this.
