TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV Will Direct THE CURRENT WAR

Timur Bekmambetov has picked up his next project to direct and it’s called The Current War.

Variety reports the 2011 spec script has been acquired by Bekmambetov’s Bazelevs banner and that he will be directing. Michael Mitnick wrote the script and Sacha Baron Cohen has some interest in playing the role of Edison, but no offer has been made yet.

The title is a sort of play on words, the story is centered on the fight between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to see who would invent the first sustainable electrical current.

The sale is a first for Mitnick, a playwrite whose latest work titled Ed, Downloaded will premiere in 2013 at the Denver Center. Bekmambetov just wrapped Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and is now in post, preparing for the June 22 premiere.
