Watch a teaser of the Miles Davis biopic

Miles Davis

Set to open next year through Sony Classics, Emmy award-winning actor Don Cheadle (Ocean’s 11, Crash) is not holding back with his Miles Davis passion project; directing, co-writing and co-producing a forthcoming biopic in which he takes the lead role.

The feature film’s own form is said to mirror to that of its subject’s music, whose inspired improvisational tunes repeatedly defined the course of modern jazz, the movie takes an unconventional approach in bringing the life of Miles Davis to the big screen.

A wild – and wildly uneven – free-form investigation of Davis’ turbulent personal and professional life that’s bolstered by an outsized lead performance, the crowdfunded film is Cheadle’s directorial debut and also stars Ewan McGregor as a reporter who tries to help him recover his stolen music.

Watch the first clip of the film below, and keep your eyes peeled for the full film dropping next year.
