Award winning actor, Don Cheadle, makes his directorial debut in Miles Ahead, a much anticipated, biopic about trumpet player Miles Davis. Cheadle, will also star as Davis himself. The film will not cover the entire length of Davis’s career like most biopic films do. But it will discuss the period of time, where Davis wasn’t playing or making any music, a rocky time in his life. Cheadle enlists some star players as the supporting cast such as, Evan McGregor and Zoe Saldana.
The film is still in the works but should be released by the end of the year. Cheadle completely backed this project on his own. Instead of getting financing from major Hollywood cronies and companies. He decided to crown found with an Indiegogo project and raised the funds entirely by himself all for his love of Mr. Davis and his timeless music.
