Greg Kilday from The Hollywood Reporter informs us that… Sony Pictures Classics has acquired Don Cheadle’s directorial debut Miles Ahead, which focuses on a few lost days in the life of jazz great Miles Davis, played by Cheadle in the film. The movie, for which SPC took worldwide rights covering most territories, has been selected to screen as the closing night film at the upcoming New York Film Festival.

Written by Steven Baigelman and Cheadle, Miles Ahead also stars Ewan McGregor as a Rolling Stone writer who helps Davis steal back his music, and Emayatzy Corinealdi as Frances Taylor, the great love of Davis’ life. The cast also includes Michael Stuhlbarg and Keith Stanfield.

The film was financed by BiFrost Pictures and produced by Cheadle, Lenore Zerman, Pamela Hirsch, Daniel Wagner, Robert Ogden Barnum, Darryl Porter and Vince Wilburn, Jr. with Mark Amin, Baigelman, Jonathan Gardner and Brian Pope as executive producers.  Davis’ son, Erin Davis, and daughter, Cheryl Davis, are also executive producers on the film, made with the participation of The Miles Davis Estate.
