In the grand scheme of history, Elon Musk’s full story feels like it has many more chapters left to go, but that isn’t stopping A24 from making a big, flashy biopic about him with The Whale director Darren Aronofsky helming the camera.
Currently, no writer or other members of the movie’s creative team have been announced, but the news comes in the wake of The Whale garnering critical acclaim and Brendan Fraser winning a best actor Oscar for his performance as the film’s central character. Director Danny Boyle’s 2015 Steve Jobs drama, also based on a biography penned by Isaacson, was similarly well received and won Michael Fassbender a best actor nomination for his role as the Apple founder.
It wouldn’t be surprising if A24 had its heart set on producing that kind of project with Musk as its focus, and it’ll be very interesting to hear more about the film as it gets closer to a production start date.
A24, the production company behind acclaimed films such as “The Whale,” is reportedly planning to make a biopic about Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur. The film will be directed by Darren Aronofsky, known for his work on “The Whale.” While the creative team and writer for the movie have not been announced yet, the project is seen as an exciting opportunity for A24, especially after the success of “The Whale” and Brendan Fraser’s Oscar-winning performance. A24 previously produced the well-received biopic “Steve Jobs,” directed by Danny Boyle. As the film’s production start date approaches, more details are expected to be revealed.
