Don Cheadle: Former U.S. President Ruins Biopic of Miles Davis

February 23, 2010 (7:39 am) GMT
Being tapped to play Miles Davis, Don Cheadle hopes that Hollywood will still continue making the jazz legend's biopic which was scrapped due to global economic crises.

blames former U.S. president George W. Bush for ruining the economy and derailing his plans to play jazz great on the big screen. Cheadle was cast in a biopic of Davis, but the movie was shelved when Hollywood got caught up in the global economic crises.

Nearly two years on, the actor hopes the project will finally get the green light, but he's still fearful it'll end up on the studios' scrapheap. Cheadle tells WENN, "Touch wood, it's been a long time coming. Working on the script right now and hopefully it will find a home."

"It's tough getting movies made right now because President Bush broke the world and the money's done! Nobody has dough. Studios are corporations and it's a very corporate model now."
