Third Installment of Atlas Shrugged Gets the Nod

Ayn Rand fans will be pleased to know that filming for the third installment of the Atlas Shrugged trilogy was greenlighted this past weekend. Thanks to a persistent publicist, I caught up with producer John Aglialoro, who shared a few stories about the challenges of bringing Rand’s epic novel to the screen. He also revealed a controversial surprise he is planning for the film, which is sure to roil Ayn Rand’s legions of acolytes monitoring the work for doctrinal purity.

    Third installment, what happened to the first two installments. I saw one commercial and that was it.

  • Ted Levy||

    Because the first two installments have been such great commercial successes...

    Coming soon! With a whole new cast!!

    The irony is delicious. At this point they must be thinking to cut and run with only two-thirds adapted would be worse than pissing more money into the wind.

    For what it's worth, I liked the first film. I'm trepidatious about the second with the casting overhaul. Comments?

    The second is better than the first, in my opinion.

    The "big surprise" has already pissed off one Forbes commenter, actually.

    For my own part (as an Objectivist and unabashed atheist), I think it might actually be a good idea. A sure way to drive someone into the opposing camp is to make them your enemy, and no one is going to listen to you if you start off by calling them a dumbass, no matter how radiant your logic is. So, in the obverse, it pays to bring people into the big tent.
