The Miles Davis Movie: A Long Time Comin’

pic_09 I’ve been following the ‘making of’ the Miles Davis Biopic since 2008. Along the way I have written about all types of topics associated with Miles Davis, but the centerpiece of Miles Davis Online has always been the movie.

It’s funny to think that in 2008 I wrote in a post about the film being a ‘deconstructed biopic’ that, “the wheels are in motion” in regards to the film getting made.

Well, I was off six or seven years!!

“You could make a strong argument that this Blog about the Miles Davis biopic is a bit early to the party.”

I wrote that in a post on November 10, 2008. Wow! That’s a lot of writing about a film project that was years from actually getting produced.

There is a wealth of excellent conjecture about the movie scattered across Miles Davis Online, but I had a terrific time writing about possible movie scenes, casting ideas, the movie poster, the music, specific scenes, and so on.

I was writing about the Miles Davis Biopic when no one was remotely interested, back when Don Cheadle hadn’t even suited up for Iron Man 2 yet.

It has been a lot of fun diving into the story of the film – with all its twists and turns -, and now it’s here. It’s actually being made.

So the wheels are definitely in motion – in June 2014 – and that’s a good thing.

That post from November 10, 2008 is titled: The Waiting Is the Hardest Part.

Happy to say that -finally- the wait is over.
