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.
