Sparks will fly in The Current War which is set during the 1800s as rivals George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison attempt to destroy the other in the pursuit of becoming a titan of electricity throughout America.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Benedict Cumberbatch could very well play those rivals as the pair are said to be 'in talks' over the roles. Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) is currently lined-up for the job with the screenplay from Michael Mitnick.

There's no release schedule yet for The Current War.
