Miles Davis

Don Cheadle has been talking about his passion project for a minute as he'll be writing, directing and starring in the upcoming film Miles Ahead about the life of jazz legend Miles Davis. A period piece, the film will focus on Davis's life in the 1970s when he returned to recording after fighting drug addiction. Cheadle is also working with jazz greats Herbie Hancock and Robert Glasper on the film and is raising money through donations at indiegogo.com.
