The Miles Davis movie, Miles Ahead, is Don Cheadle's directing debut (he's also starring as Miles Davis), and its been a passion project for the actor for a while now. What's different about this narrative is that it doesn't follow the usual rags to riches to downfall to comeback storyline. Instead, Miles Ahead focuses on the artists' time during a creative block, and the situation where his sessions tapes were stolen. The film also stars Ewan McGregor as the Rolling Stone journalist assigned to write Miles's comeback story.
