The Miles Davis Movie: Next year (or the next) at Sundance?

icon-miles The bacchanal of independent cinema, Hollywood business and celebrity worship known as the Sundance Film Festival kicks off today in idyllic Park City (at least when the town isn’t overrun by the festival). It’s another year loaded with buzz-worthy indie flicks and sleeper titles all vying for that lucrative distribution deal.

So as the curtain for this year’s Sundance opens I begin to wonder if the Miles Davis biopic is destined to be an entry one of these years… albeit a high-profile entry, but a project nevertheless in search of a studio to distribute the film. I touched on the distribution issue back in June.

I’ve wondered about Cannes as a possible starting point for the movie (you can add Venice and Toronto to the mix as well). But assuming the biopic is without a distributor in place when production wraps then might we be seeing the Miles Davis biopic traveling to the ski slopes and movie houses of Park City in 2010, or – gasp! – 2011?
