‘Tis clearly the season for biopics. Don Cheadle takes center stage in the next celebrity biopic to officially enter into production stage, Miles Ahead, about the late Miles Davis. Cheadle is not only assuming the lead role, but is also spearheading the indie movie as the director.

The crowdsource funded film—which co-stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Stuhlbarg and Emayatzy Corinealdi—will start shooting this week in Cincinnati.Today, we got a first look of Miles’ doppleganger, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Between this year’s forthcoming Jimi Hendrix and James Brown biopics starring Andre 3000 and Chadwick Boseman, respectively, and the N.W.A. movie coming next year, black music is finally getting a proper platform to shine.
