The Elon Musk Biopic
According to a source close to the project, A24 is developing a biopic about tech mogul Elon Musk that will be directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.
In September, Walter Isaacson published his bestselling biography of the controversial SpaceX and Tesla tycoon, “Elon Musk.” A24 plans to adapt the book into a movie. According to a source, the studio won the film rights to the book after a fierce bidding war.
“The deal was highly competitive with top studios and filmmakers in the running,” the source said.
“The Whale,” which starred Brendan Fraser in an Oscar-winning role, was A24’s previous collaboration with Aronofsky. ‘Black Swan,’ which was released in 2010, earned Aronofsky an Oscar nomination for best director.
The source said A24 will co-produce Musk’s movie with Aronofsky’s production company, Protozoa Pictures, which is known for intense, sometimes surreal dramas like “Pi,” “Requiem for a Dream,” “The Fountain” and “The Wrestler.”
The identity of the actor who will portray Musk in the film was not immediately known. According to Puck reporter Matt Belloni, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Dano, Shia LaBeouf, and Joaquin Phoenix were suggested as actors.
If Michael Fassbender hadn’t previously featured in the 2015 movie “Steve Jobs,” Belloni would have chosen him, the writer said, alluding to the film adaptation of Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple pioneer.
After its founding in 2012, A24 has grown to become one of Hollywood’s most significant film studios today. The firm released “Moonlight” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” which took home the best picture Oscars.
Along with these critically acclaimed movies, the studio has released “Ex Machina,” “Room,” “Lady Bird,” “Eighth Grade,” and “Uncut Gems.”
