Tillman Jr. Directing Miles Davis Biopic

George Tillman Jr. (“Faster”) will direct “Miles”, a biopic about legendary jazz musician Miles Davis reports Risky Biz Blog.

The project is loosely based on book “Dark Magus” written by Davis’ eldest son. Isaac Fergusson penned the original draft which the filmmakers will further develop. Davis was a major influencer in the music world for five decades and along the way overcame his own addiction issues.

Co-producer Nick Davis Raynes says the plan is to do a wide-appealing film along “Walk The Line” and “Ray” lines.
