Watch Don Cheadle As Miles Davis In First Miles Ahead Teaser

Don Cheadle’s crowdfunded directorial debut Miles Ahead, a Miles Davis biopic starring Cheadle himself as the jazz legend, is premiering at the New York Film Festival on Sunday. Set in the late ’70s, when Davis withdrew from the public eye, the film also stars Emayatzy Corinealdi as his first wife Frances Taylor and Ewan McGregor as a reporter who helps Davis in his attempts to recover a stolen tape of his music. We caught our first glimpse of Cheadle as Davis in a photograph last year, and now the first clip from the film has arrived, showing Davis in a studio session with his band.
