This Spring belongs to the resurgence of iconic jazz musicians, it seems, as Don Cheadle will be taking the reins as Miles Davis in biopic Miles Ahead in April, while Ethan Hawke will bring Chet Baker to the big screen in Robert Budreau's Born to Be Blue two weeks earlier. The film previously premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Hawke's co-stars consist of Carmen Ejogo and Callum Keith Rennie.

Born To Be Blue follows the later years of Baker's jazz career after his falls from grace and his attempted comebacks in the late '60s and '70s. The synopsis for the film reads, "Writer-director Robert Budreau immerses us in the seductive jazz milieu of the time, while anchoring Baker’s story in the larger context of 1960s America’s racial issues and ongoing political turmoil. Something much more than a standard biopic, Born to be Blue takes an imaginative approach true to its subject’s own creative nature, portraying the life of an artist whose contributions to the music world were as grand as his addictions were tragic."

Born To Be Blue opens in theaters March 25.
