Don Cheadle was recently interviewed by Vibe magazine about his plans to play Miles Davis in a new film. In the interview, Cheadle said, “Biopics are concerned with cradle to the grave depictions of a subject and character. This movie is much more expressive. And in my opinion, we’re hopefully making a movie that Miles would want to be in as opposed to it just ‘being about Miles.'”

A tentative release date is set for 2013 while the movie completes development and secures financing. You can read more about plans for the film at
