Be Careful What You Wish For: Nicolas Cage & Christian Bale Will Make Tesla Movie

Be Careful What You Wish For: Nicolas Cage & Christian Bale Will Make Tesla Movie

The Tor.com office is bugged. It must be, because how else does an internal joke like “Christian Bale should be Tesla and Nicolas Cage should be Thomas Edison” become an actual film?

We don’t know how, but it’s apparently in the works. Bleeding Cool is reporting that Harry Potter director Mike Newell might be attached to a Tesla biopic project starring Christian Bale. This is the Tesla... not that we deserve but the one... we need.

Nicolas Cage is also supposedly in talks to play Tesla’s mentor-then-nemesis Thomas Edison. Can you imagine it? We can.

It’ll look that bad. Welcome to the nightmare.

 


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and will be the first in line for this movie if only to hear Nicolas Cage freak out about alternating current.

It would be awesome if it was some kind of secuel to "The Prestige" where there's already Nikolai Tesla and there's Christian Bale ...

Well, Tesla should be played by David Bowie. Obviously.

Bowie was excellent, but I guess this is a younger Tesla.

I dunnooooooooooo..... Bale as Tesla reeks of awesome, and Cage as Edison MIGHT be awesome if the right Cage shows up. I'm not sure Wicker Man-style Cage makes any sense in the role.

Hasn't Nicholas Cage already been overshadowed by Tesla in a movie? Think Sorcerer's Apprentice. So being Edison would be perfect.
