Tesla biopic in development.

I’m kind of iffy about this:  “Ethan Hawke is looking set to follow the likes of Nicholas Hoult (The Current War) and David Bowie (The Prestige) by playing electricity pioneer Nikola Tesla. Tesla, currently in development and being introduced to buyers by Millennium Media at the European Film Market, which launches this week in Berlin, would also see Hawke reunited with writer-director Michael Almereyda, with whom he worked on both Hamlet and Cymbeline.”

(Via Geektyrant)  And I’m iffy about it because while I want a Tesla biopic, I don’t want a biopic about this timeline’s Tesla. I want to see a movie about the Tesla who created his Death Ray and broadcast power stations and then flew to Mars and had adventures fighting alongside the Crab-Men of Tharsis Island as they took down the Second Martian Invasion. Giant spider-like mecha. Lightning armor. MAD SCIENCE INVOLVING PIGEONS.

In other words: I don’t really want to watch Nikola Tesla die alone and almost penniless. Because that wasn’t fair. That’s not how the story is supposed to go.
