Ewan McGregorEwan McGregor and Zoe Saldana have joined the upcoming movie about musician Miles Davis. The pair will star in Kill The Trumpet Player, the directional debut of actor Don Cheadle who will also be starring in the film as Davis.

The movie centres around the singer in the days he comes out of his “silent” period and conspires with a journalist, played by McGregor, as he tries to steal his music back. Musician Herbie Hancock has also contributed to the project.

Cheadle has said that he dislikes the term “biopic”, adding: “Let’s kill that term, OK? I hope with this film we can kill the biopic.

“This film won’t try to give a broad overview of Davis’s life and give short shrift to this man’s story. For us as creative people, the time of his life that was most interesting was the five years when he wasn’t playing, when he was silent.

“What was going on in his mind? And how did he come out of it and return to music?”
