"Kind Of Blue" — Miles Davis
Don Cheadle has been trying to make this picture happen for years. With Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day") on hand as director, Cheadle aims to star as the mercurial jazz trumpeter in a "gangster" biopic that "Miles Davis would have wanted to star in," according to Cheadle. Interestingly enough, Cheadle's feature film would not focus on any grandiose period of the "Blue Cool" musicians life; focusing more on a time where Davis actually was not playing any music.
While a Miles Davis biopic would not be a cradle-to-the-grave feature like most musical biopics, we would certainly hope that it would illuminate the genius and the madness within the brilliant mind of such a powerful artist.
