Ewan McGregor's Involvement Helped Fund 'Miles Ahead,' Says Don Cheadle
Ewan McGregor and Don Cheadle hit the red carpet at the premiere of their film Miles Ahead held during the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Friday (January 22) at the Marc Theatre in Park City, Utah.
Just the day before, Ewan joined festival director Tiziana Rocca at the TaorminaFilmFest in Los Angeles.
Don recently discussed how Ewan was the reason the movie was able to get made.
“Only if I got a white actor to be in it some way,” Don said when asked if the film could have been made sooner. “And that’s the reality. That’s when the money got triggered, is when we cast Ewan McGregor. They would have said, ‘That’s great, I love the whole idea and the Miles music, now where’s the white guy?’ (laughs) That’s what the question continued to be.”
