Bad news for Don Cheadle? Last we heard the actor had a script completed for his own long developing dream project, a biopic on the legendary jazz artist Miles Davis. With support from the Davis estate and from the music labels that control the rights to his work, and with Herbie Hancock lined up to score the project, all Cheadle needed was financing for the movie that would see him direct and take on the role of the jazz icon. But almost a year has passed since that last update and word has gone disappointingly quiet. And now, another project, also backed by the Davis family may take the pole position in the race to bring the musician's life to the big screen.

Director George Tillman Jr. has had quite an interesting career in Hollywood so far. After the release of his feature directorial debut "Soul Food," Tillman used the clout garnered from the surprise financial success of that film, and unselfishly threw it behind several other productions like "Barbershop" and the "Soul Food" television series (take that Tyler Perry). As for his directing career, that is an entirely different matter. After adapting two true life stories into decent films with 2000's "Men of Honor" and 2009's "Notorious," Tillman directed the confused and frankly awful revenge picture "Faster," which found itself spinning its wheels last Thanksgiving.
