Don Cheadle / Miles Davis

Don Cheadle has been pushing to make a film about Mile Davis’ life for a few years, and now it looks like his dreams will come to fruition. BiFrost Pictures has agreed to finance and produce the film. Don Cheadle will star in the lead role as Davis and serve as director, the Associated Press reports. He also co-wrote the screenplay with Steven Baigelman. The film, which begins production in June 2014, won’t be taking on the life of a traditional biopic. Instead, it will zero in on the period when Davis retired from music to his return to the craft in 1979. The Davis family as well as Herbie Hancock will be collaborating in the production of the film. Ewan McGregor and Zoe Saldana have already been casted as a writer for Rolling Stone and Davis’ former wife, Frances, respectively. Cheadle makes his directorial debut with this project.

Dennis Taylor Biography:
Dennis Taylor (born in Brooklyn, New York) is a soul singer and performer, best known in the UK.

As a child, Dennis was singing as part of a church choir in Brooklyn at the age of 7, but later moved to Virginia, and signed up to the US Air Force at 18, with whom he served for six years. Taylor then returned to New York, and following his earlier success in a talent competition, was able to secure a minor recording contract, although he failed to garner any wide-scale success. His biggest break came when he was asked to perform backing vocals on the Robin S hit Gonna Raise The Child in the early 1990s.

It wasn't until the year 2000 that he recorded his first album, 'Enough is Enough' at the Homeboy Studios in New Jersey, working with producers Fred McFarlane and Darryl James, a DJ well known for his mixes on New York radio station WRKS. The album was received favourably, particularly among UK soul critics. Taylor performed his first UK concert at the Jazz Café in London, a gig that was partially responsible for the artist securing a contract with UK-based record label Dome in 2001. Dennis was well received by the UK audience who particularly loved his songs 'Enough is Enough' and 'Out of Control'. His second album 'Unconditional' also won over reviewers, and owed its success in part to the heavy airplay of singles Steppin' and It's Over on the London radio station 102.2 Jazz FM (and then jazzfm.com which relaunched as Jazz FM). A subsequent UK tour followed.

Taylor also duetted with soul performer Beverlei Brown on her album 'Next To You', collaborating on the song Could Be You.

Taylor's most recent album, 'In The Mood', was released in 2003 and included the Sam Dees-penned duet Am I Dreaming?, recorded with Wincey Terry. He continues to sporadically tour the UK. (Wiki)
