The Thomas Edison film The Current War is heating up. The Michael Mitnick script chronicles the true-life public battle fought between Edison and George Westinghouse for the domination of the early power industry, and it landed on the Black List in 2011. Last year Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter helmer Timur Bekmambetov signed on to direct, but further movement on the project failed to materialize. Now The Weinstein Company has stepped in to finance and produce the period pic, and while Bekmambetov is no longer attached to direct, a number of other helmers are circling the project—including Ben Stiller.
