Note: Anthony Mackie initially starred in this film as Buddy Bolden, but after years of re-shoots and other issues, Mackie dropped out and was replaced by Gary Carr. In an article from Deadline Hollywood in May 2014, there was a tentative date of three months (August 2014) to finally complete the film but I found no information about the movie after that. The film was finally released in 2019.
