It was recently announced that Nicholas is in talks to portray Serbian-American engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla in The Current War alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon, according to EW.

The Current War will follow “the late 19th century power wars between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse, with the former favoring direct current and the latter advocating for alternating current. Tesla worked for Edison in the 1880s and eventually went on to work for Westinghouse and license patents to aid him in the AC side of the electric battle.”
