Proper now, the undertaking is simply titled Musk, in line with The Hollywood Reporter. Aside from the identify and the overall vibe that it’ll be taking a tough take a look at one of many world’s richest males and most well-known tech CEOs, there presently aren’t a number of particulars in regards to the documentary. There’s no launch date (and even launch yr), and it’s unclear if it’ll deal with sure features of Musk’s companies or private life, or attempt to cowl them usually. 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 House, which covers aerospace firm SpaceX, and a film about AI known as Do You Belief This Pc?
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 count on 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 doable to know and talk no matter’s happening at Twitter today.
