Prepare to see the back of Elon Musk’s head: Darren Aronofsky, director of “The Wrestler” and “Black Swan,” has lined up a biopic about the Tesla founder and Twitter re-namer as his next project.
A24 will back the film, the second straight collaboration between the Oscar-winning distributor (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”) and the “Requiem for a Dream” director. People familiar with the project confirmed the news Friday that was first reported by Puck.
The movie is to be based on the September release “Elon Musk” by Walter Isaacson, whose Steve Jobs biography was the basis of Danny Boyle’s Oscar-nominated “Jobs.” It will be the first straight biopic for Aronofsky, known for his darkly surreal tone and long tracking shots, filmed from behind his main characters as they walk through chaotic scenes.
More to come …
