AFM is happening right this second, but nothing to report on a deal for the Miles Davis biopic – Kill The Trumpet Player. But what we do know is how the film is being pitched – in terms of story.
This is via Deadline.com:
Kill The Trumpet Player, IM Global. Don Cheadle, director. Cheadle, Zoe Saldana, Ewan McGregor star. After his record label steals his comeback album before he’s ready for it to be heard, Miles Davis hunts it down with a journalist and a junkie jazz musician.
Wow – that is definitely not a traditional biopic. Miles Davis hunts down team of record execs! Does he kill them? Does he yell at them? This is bizarre.
