Miles Davis (Not A) Biopic Now Called ‘Miles Ahead’

Ten days after Cate Blanchett finished “Carol,” the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission announced that Don Cheadle will star as iconic jazz innovator Miles Davis in a movie filming here in July.

Cheadle (“House of Lies,” “Iron Man 2,” “Iron Man 3”) also will direct and produce “Miles Ahead” from a script he wrote with Steven Baigelman.

I was actually beginning to like “Kill the Trumpet Player,” but really, that was never going to be the movie title.
