The story of Elon Musk will soon be making its way to the screen.

PEOPLE confirms that a film based on Walter Isaacson's recent authorized Elon Musk biography is in the works at A24 after a highly competitive deal.

The Whale's Darren Aronofsky is set to direct and produce the film with his production company Protozoa Pictures.

While details of the movie are being kept hush-hush, the 52-year-old SpaceX and Tesla CEO shared his enthusiasm about the project — and specifically, for Aronofsky, 54 — on his social-media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter).

"Glad Darren is doing it. He is one of the best," Musk wrote. Aronofsky previous films include Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream.

News of the upcoming film was first reported by Puck.

Released in September, Elon Musk reveals new details about the billionaire entrepreneur's childhood, his relationships with former wives and girlfriends, and his children.

According to publisher Simon & Schuster, Isaacson, who previously wrote a biography of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, spent two years shadowing and interviewing Musk himself as well as speaking with his family, friends and colleagues.

“He has a lot of fans and a lot of enemies, and my book tries to tell a straightforward narrative,” Isaacson said of Musk in a September conversation with New Orleans' Times-Picayune.

Added the former CNN CEO and Time editor of his book, “I thought it was going to be more about rocket ships and electric cars. It became a more exciting ride.”

Aside from his various business and technological ventures, Musk is also a dad to 11 kids, including three whom he shares with ex Grimes: sons X Æ A-12, 3, and Techno Mechanicus, plus daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, who turns 2 next month.

Musk also shares 19-year-old twins Vivian Jenna Wilson and Griffin Musk, along with triplets Kai, Damian and Sax, who were born in 2006, with first wife Justine Wilson. The two had another son, Nevada, who died at 10 weeks old.

Musk also shares twins Strider and Azure, who were born just weeks before Exa, with Neuralink exec Shivon Zilis.

“[Elon] really wants smart people to have kids, so he encouraged me to do this,” Zilis, 37, says in Isaacson's book, adding, "I can’t possibly think of genes I would prefer for my children."
