Instead of a movie version with Angelina Jolie, Atlas Shrugged might be getting a miniseries with Charlize Theron. (CHT Angela Pham by way of James Tuttle.)
On the whole I think this is good news. Theron isnt quite my vision of Dagny, but neither was Jolie; and although Id love to see Rands surreal vision unfolding on the big screen, unless its filmed as a trilogy LOTR-style, its probably better to do it in a format that allows more of the story and characters to be presented. (The report says that Theron is eager to play the role and favours a miniseries out of concern that a feature would lose many of the nuances of the monster-sized novel.) Plus, if it succeeds as a miniseries we might always see a big-screen version further down the road.
