Watch: Don Cheadle Hits The Studio As Miles Davis In First Clip From 'Miles Ahead'

Now that the New York Film Festival has the premiere of Steven Spielberg‘s “Bridge Of Spies” out of the way, and the glitzy bow of Danny Boyle‘s “Steve Jobs” has wrapped up, they can focus on their next big movie to be unveiled: Don Cheadle‘s “Miles Ahead.” For those of us who aren’t in the Big Apple, the first clip from the movie will provide a little preview.

Don Cheadle stars in and directs the passion project that finds him playing jazz legend Miles Davis. The story is set during the musician’s silent period and follows his return to music, the hatching of a plot with a Rolling Stone writer (Ewan McGregor) to win back control of his songs, and details his relationship with his great love and muse Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi). It’s potentially great material, so let’s hope Cheadle hits all the right notes.

No release date yet, but Sony Pictures Classics will distribute the film.
