The Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission announced that Don Cheadle’s film about iconic jazz innovator Miles Davis will be filming there in July.
Cheadle will direct and produce the film called “Miles Ahead” from a script that he co-wrote.
“We look forward to exploring the culture, musicians and backdrop of this city. We are hoping to work closely with the community to bring this project to (the) screen,” Cheadle said in the film commission release.
Cheadle, 49, also an accomplished songwriter and saxophonist, was nominated for a 2004 Grammy Award, in addition to his one Oscar nomination (“Hotel Rwanda” in 2005) and six Emmy nominations.
