Darren Aronofsky, acclaimed for directing films like ‘Black Swan’ and ‘The Whale,’ is set to take the helm of Elon Musk’s biopic—a decision enthusiastically endorsed by Musk himself.
Elon Musk, the tech tycoon, will grace the big screen in a biopic presented by the indie film powerhouse A24.
This cinematic venture will be skillfully helmed by the Oscar-nominated Darren Aronofsky, known for his mind-bending storytelling.
The script draws inspiration from Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography, a gem that delves into the life of the controversial tech mogul.
Isaacson, who previously unraveled the complexities of Steve Jobs in a book-turned-film feat, has once again provided the narrative foundation for this intriguing project.
Variety spills the beans that a fierce battle unfolded among studios and filmmakers vying to snag the rights to Isaacson’s book.
A24 emerged victorious, securing the coveted role of bringing Musk’s narrative to life on the silver screen.
Aronofsky has recently directed the Oscar-nominated “The Whale” with Brendan Fraser. His surreal and psychologically charged filmmaking style has earned him renown.
Aronofsky is known for movies like Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and Mother!
He will use his filmmaking skills to tell Musk’s story in a unique way.
Elon Musk, the man who propelled into the limelight with the founding of SpaceX in 2002, has a rollercoaster biography.
From early investments in Tesla to donning multiple hats within the company, including chairman and CEO. Musk’s journey has been nothing short of extraordinary.
His controversial decision to acquire Twitter for a cool $44 billion, rebranding it as X, stirred the social media pot.
Under Musk’s stewardship, Twitter underwent significant changes, including layoffs, user verification fees, and a revamp of shared links.
Despite facing the backlash, Musk currently sits atop the wealth throne. Estimates place his net worth north of $200 billion as of October.
Breaking the news on X, Musk shared his thoughts on the cinematic venture.
In response to a post by X News Daily, he expressed his satisfaction, stating, “Glad Darren is doing it. He is one of the best.”
