Based on a screenplay by Leap Year director and Girl With a Pearl Earring producer Anand Tucker, the story will focus on Tesla’s last big experiment, which was regarded as a failure at the time, but may in fact have been among his great triumphs. Tucker will also direct. The character piece will explore Tesla’s personal journey to achieve his scientific ambitions while risking financial security and battling his inner demons.
Ingenious Media is arranging financing and Daria Jovicic (The Railway Man) will produce under her Latitude Media banner. Peter Touche, Andrea Scarso and Ximo Paris will executive produce, with Tucker’s Seven Stories co-producing. Jovicic and Tucker previously collaborated on features The Railway Man, Incendiary and Girl With a Pearl Earring.
