"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.

Just one clarification, Wally: The Angelina Jolie project and the current Lionsgate project are one in the same. This one was never "off again." Angelina is slated to star as Dagny Taggart. However, there's never been any official announcement concerning Pitt's involvement.

I know of some A-plus-list actors who are under consideration for other roles, but if I revealed their names, I'd have to kill all of you.

Thanks so much for the clarification, Robert. This is a movie project that I'm very excited about. (Must. Fight. High. Expectations.)
