Atlas Shrunk 2.0

Here’s some news about the Atlas Shrugged movie, plus a cast list.

The news looks slightly better than I originally feared – i.e. the budget is more than the initially reported $5 million, they plan to make more than one movie, Francisco is in the script after all, etc. Still not especially optimistic.

    P.S. As a corrective to Rand’s monochrome world, they’re making Eddie Willers black. Peikoff had previously suggested making Cherryl Brooks black. But those are both relatively weak characters; I’d always wanted to make Ellis Wyatt black, though others have done me one better.

    I always imagined Hugh Akston as Roderick Long.

      “Slender and tall,” a “lean face,” “cold, observant eyes,” and a “look of courteous sternness” — yup, that’s me.

        Well, you do physically have “cold, observant eyes,” and a “look of courteous sternness” sometimes. And now it just seems like I’m hitting on you. 🙂

        I was going more on you as channel to the Master Knower.

    Maybe I’m focusing on nonessentials, but when I watch an interview with the director and hear him mispronounce Rand’s first name and describe her heroes and heroines as being beyond good and evil, I worry that this won’t end well.

      Egad. Where did you see this interview?
