Elon Musk Biopic in the Works at A24, Darren Aronofsky to Direct

A24 is currently in the process of developing a biopic centered on Elon Musk, the controversial CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX.

Director Darren Aronofsky, known for his work on The Whale, to helm the project. This development is confirmed, revealing that A24 secured the rights to Walter Isaacson’s recent biography on Musk, which will serve as the basis for the film. Aronofsky is not only set to direct but will also produce the movie through his production company, Protozoa Pictures.

The competitive nature of the book option deal is emphasized, with major studios and filmmakers vying for the opportunity to bring Musk’s intriguing life story to the big screen. Issacson’s biography, published by Simon & Schuster, delves into Musk’s upbringing in South Africa, detailing his experiences with his engineer father, Errol Musk, and dietician mother, Maye Musk, who has since ventured into modeling.

According to Hollywood Reporter, the narrative is based on Isaacson’s extensive two-year shadowing of Musk, involving interviews with Musk, his family, friends, colleagues, and even perceived adversaries. By 2022, Tesla had achieved the milestone of selling one million electric cars, while SpaceX had successfully launched 31 rockets into space.

Drawing a parallel to Isaacson’s previous work on a tech pioneer, the biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was adapted into a film with Michael Fassbender in the titular role, directed by Danny Boyle with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin. In this case, the script for the Elon Musk film adaptation remains shrouded in secrecy, leaving details about the project undisclosed.
