Having been in the works for years now, Don Cheadle is finally giving fans some information on his developing Miles Davis film, starring himself as Davis. He recently told The Wall Street Journal:
“It’s not a biopic, per se. It’s a gangster pic. It’s a movie that Miles Davis would have wanted to star in. Without throwing history away, we’re trying to shuffle it and make it more cubist. The bulk of it takes place in ’79, in a period where he actually wasn’t playing. But we traverse a lot of it his life, but it’s not a cradle to grave story”
A release date is far off since the film is still in the development stages (ie. we need some money), but with Cheadle as the driver we should be inside theatres soon.
