FIRST LOOK AT DON CHEADLE AS MILES DAVIS

The first full trailer for Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead has been released. The film stars the excellent Don Cheadle as the legendary jazz musician, with Ewan McGregor in a supporting role as Rolling Stone journalist Dave Brill.

The plot follows a particularly tempestuous part of Davis’ life and focuses on his relationship with his first wife Frances Taylor Davis, played by Emayatzy Corinealdi.

Cheadle told Entertainment Weekly: “I never thought about portraying him, really. I had done several other quote-unquote biopics and was always struck by the limitations they presented, because they were trying to be historically accurate. So I didn’t want to do another biopic. When I heard the idea, from various people who had played with him, producers, writers, that this could potentially be something, I thought, ‘if the script is great, I would always be open to it since he’s always been a fascinating figure to me’.”

Miles Ahead will be released in the UK on 22 April
