Proper now, the mission is simply titled Musk, in line with The Hollywood Reporter. Apart from the title and the final vibe that it’ll be taking a tough have a look at one of many world’s richest males and most well-known tech CEOs, there at the moment aren’t loads of particulars in regards to the documentary. There’s no launch date (and even launch yr), and it’s unclear if it’ll concentrate on sure features of Musk’s companies or private life, or attempt to cowl them basically. Gibney says he’s been engaged on it “on and off, for a while” in line with Deadline.
This received’t be the primary documentary about Musk. He was the topic of 2018’s Elon Musk: The Actual Life Iron Man and a 2022 BBC program merely known as The Elon Musk Present. He’s additionally featured in Netflix’s Return to Area, which covers aerospace firm SpaceX, and a film about AI known as Do You Belief This Laptop?
Gibney has a repute for being vital and incisive. He’s helped scrutinize Enron, Volkswagen, the Church of Scientology, and extra in documentaries like The Smartest Guys within the Room, Soiled Cash, and Going Clear. He’s additionally been comparatively vital of Musk previously, so I personally wouldn’t anticipate Musk to finish up being a puff piece. However whereas I’ve loved loads of Gibney’s earlier work, and know he’s very adept at simplifying and explaining complicated matters, I do marvel if it’s even attainable to grasp and talk no matter’s happening at Twitter lately.
