Atlas Shrugged - The Movie


While numerous big name producers and actors have, in the past, expressed interest in adapting Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged for the big screen, nothing has ever materialized. Shortly before his rights to the film were set to expire, however, producer John Aglialoro began filming the first in a trilogy of movies based on the epic novel. The crew wrapped up the principal photography phase of production yesterday. Yet, with a budget of only $5 million and a relatively inexperienced cast and crew, there are questions about whether they can produce a quality adaptation.

This movie, when it's released, will cheered as a monumental work of cinema. It will effectively ridicule the current state of our world, and offer new thrust for the defence of Liberty. This movie has its greatest impact in America (Of course) and will go far to force the re-evaluation of the current states of government, commerce, and social mores.

Odd. My recollection is that filming ended months ago.
