Elon Musk has asserted his influence in the automotive industry, Twitter (apologies, X), and now he’s extending his reach to the silver screen. According to NBC News, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk is set to be the focal point of an upcoming biopic directed by the Oscar-nominated Darren Aronofsky.

A24, the production company, is said to be developing the film, drawing inspiration from Walter Isaacson’s biography detailing Musk’s dynamic life. Isaacson’s book, which gained significant attention upon its September release, sparked a competitive bidding war among top studios and filmmakers for its rights.

NBC News quotes an anonymous source closely tied to the project, revealing that A24, renowned for cinematic successes like “Moonlight” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” will collaborate with Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures in the film’s production.

The director, known for his work on “The Whale” and acclaimed films such as “Black Swan,” “Pi,” “Requiem for a Dream,” and “The Wrestler,” is set to bring Elon Musk’s story to the big screen.

While details about the Elon Musk biopic remain scarce, speculation is rife about the actor who will portray the tech entrepreneur. Matt Belloni of Puck, the newsbreak, suggests several names, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Dano, Shia LaBeouf, and Joaquin Phoenix.

Notably, he mentions that Michael Fassbender, who portrayed Steve Jobs in a 2015 biopic based on an Isaacson book, would have been a contender if not for his prior role.

Considering the extensive filmmaking process and the recent end of the Hollywood actors’ strike, it’s likely to be a considerable wait before Aronofsky’s rendition of Musk’s life hits the screens. However, both industry insiders and the general audience are expected to closely follow updates on the movie, especially concerning casting decisions.

The anticipation is palpable as we eagerly await Musk’s reaction to the actors chosen by Aronofsky and his team to portray the tech magnate.
