"Atlas" film can't be shrugged off
On again, off again, on again, off again. That's been the history of a possible Atlas Shrugged movie for the past three or four decades. Just a year or so ago, we heard about an Atlas project that might star Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but that apparently wasn't to be. However, Robert Bidinotto reports that a movie from Lionsgate is indeed in the works, to be directed by Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog). Perelman and Lionsgate vice president Michael Burns appeared earlier this month on a panel at the Atlas Shrugged 50th Anniversary Celebration, held by the Atlas Society at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. Bidinotto's report is very interesting, and you can find it here.
