Talk of the Miles Davis Movie makes it into a recent Don Cheadle interview with New York Magazine. Between talk of his new film The Guard and his latest work as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador for the environment, Cheadle delivers some words about the process of getting the Miles Davis film off the ground.
There’s been talk of a Miles Davis biopic that you’ll star in and produce for a few years now. What’s the status of that?
“It’s day by day. I actually just got off the phone with the studio executives about putting it together. It’s a difficult time to make films, especially ones that don’t have people flying or sequels or cars. So we’re grinding, you know. We’re struggling through, but it’s going to happen.”
