Don Cheadle is one of the finest actors around and he is set to return to the big screen to take on the role of musician Miles Davis in Miles Ahead.

As if taking on the lead role was not enough, Miles Ahead will also mark the feature film directorial debut for the actor turn filmmaker. This has been somewhat of a passion project for Cheadle, who has also penned the film's screenplay.

While I cannot wait to see what he delivers as a director, I am also looking forward to seeing the Oscar-nominated actor embody this role - it really is promising to be another very fine performance.

We have already been treated to some new posters for Miles Ahead this week and now the brand new trailer has been unveiled. Check it out:

The movie sees Cheadle team up with Ewan McGregor, who takes on the role of a Rolling Stones reporter. The duo are joined on the cast list by Emayatzy Corinealdi, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Keith Stanfield.

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).

Miles Ahead is a wildly entertaining, impressionistic, no-holds-barred portrait of one of twentieth-century music's creative geniuses.

Miles Ahead is released 22nd April.
