'Miles Ahead' Film Production To Start This July In Cincinnati

Actor Don Cheadle has filmed movies around the world, so he's not totally surprised to be preparing to shoot his Miles Davis feature in Cincinnati.

"You have architecture and the look here that can approximate the era that we're shooting in Manhattan, which Manhattan doesn't really have a lot of anymore," said Cheadle in the Miles Ahead Downtown production office.

...Cheadle still needs extras and period cars for the film. Interested adults 21 and older may send their headshot, full name, email address and phone number to milesfilmextras@gmail.com. He's also seeking $325,000 from the Indiegogo crowd-funding website by July 10.

I am begging Vince, Erin and Don to change the marketing poster for the film. Gun violence is a plague in America today. When I think of Miles, he's got a goddam trumpet in his hands, not a snub nose .38. You are going to turn an awful lot of people off with that shot. If for no other reason think of the fans you will alienate who are passionate on this subject. I honestly don't think Miles' would approve of that picture today. The marketing seems to be using a shot that appeals to angry young black men with guns. As a HUGE Miles fan (over 130 CDs in my collection) who loves Miles and believe he is perhaps the most important American cultural icon, I'm begging you, please change it. The present marketing image is undignified. Miles deserves better. Don, you are a very smart man and a "thinking" artist. You know I'm right.

I can only hope someone connected to the Davis family reads this.
