Actor Don Cheadle aims to make his first directorial debut for the movie "Miles Ahead" a biopic on the life of legendary jazz artist Miles Davis.  Cheadle has raised almost $300k for the indie project with less than 2 days to go for the fundraiser.  He has also enlisted the help of Herbie Hancock and Robert Glasper for the movie's soundtrack.
