    Default Don Cheadle to play Miles Davis in long-planned biopic



    Don Cheadle will play Miles Davis in a biopic the actor has long planned on the innovative jazz pioneer.

    BiFrost Pictures told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it will finance and produce Kill the Trumpet Player, with Cheadle also making his directorial debut. Cheadle has been trying to make the film for years. Production is finally set to begin in June.

    The production company said the movie will focus on when Davis temporarily retired from making music and then re-emerged in 1979. The script is written by Cheadle and Steven Baigelman.

    Ewan McGregor will co-star as a Rolling Stone reporter,

    Who will play Betty Davis tho
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    I can see Cheadle pulling this off, he kinda looks like him too.
