"Atlas Shrugged" to Begin Filming Next Month

Posted: May 27th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Atlas Shrugged" to Begin Filming Next MonthSubmit Comment
For the last two decades Hollywood has unsuccessfully tried to bring Ayn Rand's 1,100 page "Atlas Shrugged" to the big screen. Now comes word that John Aglialoro, who paid $1 million for the book rights over seventeen years ago, is tired of waiting and has now announced that he is financing the film himself. He has set a June 11th production start in Los Angeles and the project will be the first of four films made from the book.

Aglialoro is only weeks away from production and he has yet to cast actors to play Dagny Taggart, Hank Rerden, John Galt and other role. He is currently in talks with Charlize Theron and Maggie Gyllenhall to play Taggart. Word is that negotiations will fall apart, since both actresses are not willing to begin work by next month.

Plot: Dagny Taggart, one of the great heroines of modern literature, struggles to fulfill her great-grandfather's legacy as she steers her family's railroad conglomerate through the triple threat of government corruption, international terrorism and a mysterious force that is silencing the great thinkers of the day.

@Teem Selami

Really? How about Fraggletooth Dunst, or the SwimFan Erika Christensen. It looks as if she was whacked with a shovel that had a sticker printed saying, "You're Ugly!" How about Julia Stiles? The chinese white girl. When she cries, she looks like a character from Akira.

Hollywood has tried unsuccessfully for two decades to get a movie based on this book completed?

Don't kid yourself, if Hollywood wanted this book turned into a Telemundo Soap Opera, they would have done it by now. The only people in Hollywood that don't laugh hysterically for hours and hours at the very thought of this book being turned into any sort of film project are those that think that Ayn Rand and Objectivism actually have any amount of value whatsoever.

BTW Crazy Psychotic Rorschach in the graphic novel and movie "The Watchmen" is pretty much Alan Moore's argument that Ayn Rand and the philosophy of Objectivism is about as kooky as a screwball sandwich served up by the Joker.

And frankly a philosophy where the philosopher has to write a novel to present her theories to the world in a fictional novel seems only a step away from L. Ron Hubbard and a couple of Science Fiction books he wrote.

Anyone remember Battlefield Earth?

Well if any of you f*cking retards would actually read the book, instead of being ignorant morons, this is one of the best books of the century. It's used in thousands of college's worldwide. Excellent story by far.

@za316653 Yep you, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and a ton of so called intellectuals keep saying that this book is better the buttered toast, but frankly I myself have never found the need to have a philosophy spoon fed to me in fictional novel form.

But from your comment I would say that you lapped up every single bit of the "more digestible for the masses" version of Rand's philosophy (better known as Atlas Shrugged) then a crack addict eating a bowl of Cheerios & Crack.

The book's popularity and use in colleges is primarily because of the side of the fence that has embraced its flawed deluded concepts as the "right" thing to do.

That's also why anytime this country experiences an economic downturn sales of Atlas Shrugged go up. Just a lot of depressed ex-rich people looking for somebody to blame.

Yep Ayn Rand and Adolph Hitler pointing out a particular group and labeling them as the obvious bad guys, and if they are not stopped it will lead to the destruction of humanity as we know it.

If Hitler wouldn't have been such a horrible writer and without the benefit of Rand's level of education Mein Kampf would have probably have been just as good of a read...

...To you.

But some of us recognize bullsh*t no matter what it's wrapped in.

@za-so becuase it's used by a bunch of college ass-holes it means it's good?

we learned from Avatar just becuase the masses liked it ... not necessarily making bit a good thing.
