Miles Ahead: Don Cheadle Drums Up Support For New Miles Davis Film - Uprising Radio
Considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, it is a surprising fact that no one has yet made a film picturizing the life of jazz legend Miles Davis.
Now, after years of negotiations and careful planning, Academy Award-nominated actor Don Cheadle has taken the reins to make a film called Miles Ahead, a feature film about a specific five-year period in Davis’ life. Cheadle will direct the film and star as Miles Davis himself, alongside acclaimed actor Ewan McGregor.
Listen to Don Cheadle's interview with Uprising Radio's Sonali Kolhatkar.
