Don Cheadle is one of the best actors around and he is set to return to the big screen this April with his new music biopic Miles Ahead.

Miles Ahead

Miles Ahead sees Cheadle take on the central role of musician Miles Davis… and he takes centre stage in this terrific new poster for the film.

As if taking on the role of Davis was not enough for Cheadle, Miles Ahead will also mark the feature film directorial debut for the Oscar-nominated actor. Cheadle is no stranger to the director's chair with a couple of episodes of House of Lies under his belt but this will be the first time that he has tackled a feature film. I really cannot wait to see what he delivers with his debut.

Cheadle has brought together a great cast as Miles Ahead sees the actor team up with Ewan McGregor, who will play Rolling Stone reporter Dave Braden. Emayatzy Corinealdi, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Keith Stanfield complete the line-up.

All Rolling Stone reporter Dave Braden (McGregor) wants is an exclusive interview with the jazz legend himself, Miles Davis (Cheadle). What he gets instead is a wild and dangerous ride-along with a recording artist living at his edge, rife with shootouts, car-chases, and a tale of lost love to the singer Frances (Corinealdi).

Inspired by events in Miles Davis's life, Cheadle boldly brings his vision, both in-front-of and behind-the-camera in Miles Ahead. Wildly entertaining, impressionistic, no-holds-barred portrait of one of twentieth-century music's creative geniuses.

Miles Ahead is released 22nd April.
