Kind of ironic in that the character of Tesla (portrayed by David Bowie) played a prominent part in Christian Bale's "The Prestige"... although that film obviously NOT intended as any sort of biographical history.

This movie is a good concept if it portrays the personalities and "rivalry" of two geniuses and sets it in the REAL Zeitgeist of that era. It will be a bad concept if Universal takes the sleazy road: portraying Edison as a metaphor for an evil capitalist, doing whatever it takes to advance his own wealth and ego - and Tesla as the every-immigrant, struggling for his ideals and ideas in a corrupt system he is not, or will not be a part of, finally being destroyed by American greed and the tacit Governmental support of evil Big Business. I hope it is not the trite, strereotypical latter!
