Photos: ‘Miles Ahead’ Filming Begins In Cincinnati – USA Today

Actors Don Cheadle and Ewan McGregor arrived in style for the filming of their first scenes of the Miles Ahead movie this week, driving a green Jaguar down Seventh Street.

Cheadle, dressed as jazz icon Miles Davis, and McGregor, playing a long-haired Rolling Stone reporter, hopped out of the car Monday in front of the Cincinnati Bell building, which stood in for CBS headquarters in New York in 1979.

… Cheadle, an Oscar-nominated actor (Hotel Rwanda), makes his directorial debut and stars in Miles Ahead, set in 1979 New York as the musician was ending his five-year “silent period” out of the public eye. In the script co-written by Steven Baigelman and Cheadle, Davis enlists Rolling Stone reporter Dave Brill (McGregor) to retrieve a recording stolen from the musician’s home.
