Check Out The First Photo Of Don Cheadle As Miles Davis

We learned last month that Don Cheadle is starring as Miles Davis in Miles Ahead, a crowdfunded biopic that doubles as Cheadle’s directorial debut. Above, find the first image of Cheadle in character circa 1969’s In A Silent Way, via EW, where you can also find an interview with Cheadle. The film will focus on “the musician’s transition into music after a five-year hiatus — otherwise known as his ‘silent period’ — and tumultuous relationship with first wife Frances Taylor Davis.” Ewan McGregor, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Emayatzy Corinealdi will co-star in the film, which begins shooting next week in Cincinnati.
