Directly below this post we noted a recent interview that Erin Davis (Miles’ son) and Vince Wilburn Jr. (Miles’ nephew) did with YRB Magazine; Wilburn Jr. noted that a new writer, Steven Baigelman, is collaborating with Don Cheadle on an updated draft of the script.
Big news for followers (me) of the Miles Davis Biopic.
But in the very same interview, Wilburn Jr. also points out that Herbie Hancock is planning to score the movie. Wow. That’s kind of big news, in my opinion.
Here’s Wilburn Jr.’s exact quote: Yeah, Herbie Hancock’s going to score it and Don Cheadle’s directing and starring.
We’ve long known about Cheadle, but Hancock definitely adds some spice to the project.
