Michael K. Williams Still Looking To Do Miles Davis Biopic

According to a new interview on Radar Radio, Michael K. Williams is hoping to jumpstart his desire to play famed jazzman Miles Davis is biopic. “That’s happening. That’s very much so happening. That’s in the works right now. That will probably, hopefully – well, you know, knock on wood – that’ll probably be going into production the first quarter of 2018. That’s the goal. Hollywood, stay tuned, right?”

Williams has been trying to get the Miles Davis project off the ground since at least 2014, when he wanted to focus on “Miles and Me” and center it on the friendship between Davis and his biographer Quincy Troupe Jr.

Doing a music biopic is very tricky if you don’t all the rights to the person’s life as well as his music. John Ridley’s biopic on Jimi Hendrix was done without the use of his music and so was Don Cheadle’s “Miles Ahead” which was released last year.
