Fuelled by the intense rivalry between electricity titans Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), THE CURRENT WAR tells the dramatic story of the late 19th century race to light up America and power the world. Rounding out the cast are Nicholas Hoult as the eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla, Katherine Waterston as Westinghouse’s outspoken wife Marguerite, Tom Holland as Edison’s confident young secretary Samuel Insull, Matthew Macfadyen as the famous financier and banker J.P. Morgan, and Tuppence Middleton as Edison’s supportive wife Mary. THE CURRENT WAR is produced by Timur Bekmambetov (WANTED) for Bazelevs Production and Basil Iwanyk (A STAR IS BORN) for Thunder Road Pictures. The films executive producers include Martin Scorsese (THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, THE DEPARTED) and Steve Zaillian (SCHINDLER’S LIST, MONEYBALL).
