The film is directed by Darren Aronofsky
It has not yet been officially announced which actor will play 52-year-old Elon Musk in Darren Aronofsky’s film, but many fans believe that this role should go to Canadian actor Kevin Durand, who starred in such films and TV series as “The Strain”, “The Butterfly Effect” ” and “Voltage”.
“Kevin Durand was born to play this role,” said one X user, noting the physical resemblance between him and Musk. When asked which actor would be best suited to play Musk, another person said, “Obviously Kevin Durand.”
“Kevin Durand was born for this role,” fans have long “chosen” the actor for the role of Elon Musk
Comparisons between Musk and Durand have been circulating on social media for a long time. In 2021, a petition was proposed to have Kevin Durand play Elon Musk in a biopic. However, reports that Kevin Durand should play Elon Musk in a movie appeared in 2020.
Some people have also come up with a “conspiracy theory” that Musk and Durand are actually the same person. “I am convinced that Kevin Durand and Elon Musk are clones,” one user said.
Earlier it became known that the official biography of Walter Isaacson, published this year, will serve as the basis for the script for the upcoming biopic about Elon Musk. Studio A24 has started creating a biographical film about Elon Musk, which will be directed by Darren Aronofsky.
