Darren Aronofsky is set to direct a film for entertainment company A24 based on Walter Isaacson’s Elon Musk, Variety reports.

Isaacson’s biography of Musk, the controversial owner of X (formerly known as Twitter) and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, was published in September by Simon & Schuster. In a starred review, a critic for Kirkus called the book an “alternately admiring and critical, unvarnished, and a closely detailed account of a troubled innovator.”

Aronofsky is known for his often dark films, including Requiem for a Dream (based on the Hubert Selby Jr. novel), Black Swan, and Mother! His latest movie, The Whale, earned three Academy Award nominations, including one for Brendan Fraser, who won in the best actor category.

Isaacson’s books have been adapted for the screen before. His 1992 biography of Henry Kissinger formed the basis for the television movie Kissinger and Nixon, while his 2011 book, Steve Jobs, was adapted into an Oscar-nominated 2015 film directed by Danny Boyle.

Variety speculated about who might play Musk in Aronofsky’s film, noting that Internet users have already suggested Rami Malek, Matt LeBlanc, Robert Downey Jr., and Jesse Eisenberg (who played Musk’s hated rival Mark Zuckerberg in the film The Social Network). The magazine offered a few of its own suggestions, including Jon Hamm, Kathy Bates, and Musk himself (his “ego would be up for it,” writes reporter Todd Spangler).

On X, Musk didn’t offer any casting suggestions, but he did signal his approval for the adaptation, writing, “Glad Darren is doing it. He is one of the best.”
