Cheadle Asked To Play Davis In Biopic

Oscar-nominee DON CHEADLE is in discussions to play MILES DAVIS in a movie biopic of the jazz great. Davis' nephew VINCE WILBURN - who accepted the late trumpeter's award at the 21st Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in New York last night (13MAR06) - is determined to keep his uncle's legacy alive by making the movie, and is just waiting for the perfect script. He said at Monday's star-studded celebration, "We're working with Sony (Pictures) on a biopic. "We're gonna negotiate with Don Cheadle whose name keeps coming up to play Miles. "It (the film) can touch on many things from the way he changed the wave of music of different decades from bee-bop to hip-hop and in between, and the personal side. "First of all we have to get a script and people are submitting them to Sony Pictures but nothing has caught our fancy. "We've been talking to ANTOINE FUQUA who did TRAINING DAY to direct.
