Don Cheadle is seeking funds for his passion project, “Miles Ahead” a movie about Jazz great Miles Davis.
Cheadle, a Jazz enthusiast has partnered with Indiegogo to raise $325,000 by July 6th to start production on the film. He first wrote about the project in 2007 and says,
Music has always been one of my passions. Since 6th grade, when I started listening to my parents’ Miles Davis records, his artistry has been an inspiration to me; he was someone who only ever followed a path as a runway to create a new one.
He will star, produce and make his directing debut along with Ewan McGregor who has already signed on.
The story will chronicle the life of Davis during his dangerous days as he emerged from a silent period to conspire with a Rolling Stone writer to steal back his music.
Cheadle has already invested a lot of his own money into the project and has the Miles Davis estate behind him.
They are hoping to start shooting this summer.
