Don Cheadle’s biopic about late jazz great Miles Davis is finally moving ahead. Cheadle will not only be starring in the Davis biopic titled Miles Ahead, but he will also be making his directorial debut with the film.
Production of the biopic has already begun in Cincinnati, Ohio with reports stating that Cheadle was recently spotted in the city dressed as Miles Davis. The film also stars Ewan McGregor as a Rolling Stone magazine reporter, and most of the film takes place in 1970’s New York.
Filming of the biopic is scheduled to continue into August and is being independently funded. However the film still requires additional funding, in which Cheadle recently started a funding campaign on Indiegogo to raise money to fill the balance.
