Miles Ahead, co-written and directed by Don Cheadle, stars Cheadle as the troubled jazz musician. Cheadle took a free-form approach to the film's narrative. Skipping around in time, it depicts Davis' attempts to get his career back on track following a period of inactivity and drug addiction in the 1970s, fictional adventures with a journalist (played by Ewan McGregor) who wants to profile him, and his troubled marriage to a former dancer (Emayatzy Corinealdi). Filming took place from July 7 to August 16, 2014. The film was largely well-received.
