J.J. Abrams Is Making A Thomas Edison Movie, But What About Tesla?

J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot is secretly working away on a Thomas Edison biopic. But will it show him electrocuting an elephant?

TheWrap is reporting that Paramount and Bad Robot are teaming up yet again to make a Thomas Edison film that will "depict the legendary inventor as a rugged eccentric genius." Honestly, the Drunken History version of Edison's life is pretty much good enough for us, but hell, why not? David Bowie for Nikola Tesla (again), or no deal.

What about all the intellectual theft? Is there going to be a scene with Edison twirling his mustache as he swipes blueprints?
