Elon Musk on the big screen: Darren Aronofsky is set to make a film about the life of billionaire Elon Musk, based on the biography by Walter Isaacson.

According to Variety, the successful studio A24 has commissioned director Darren Aronofsky to direct a biopic about the controversial entrepreneur. Aronofsky is considered one of Hollywood's most renowned directors and has so far been able to impress with dramas such as "The Whale", "Requiem for a Dream" and "Black Swan". The biography "Elon", written by Walter Isaacson and published this year, is to serve as the basis for the screenplay.

Musk expressed his enthusiasm and wrote on his own platform X:

"Glad Darren is doing it. He is one of the best."
