"Hollywood really lacks the courage to take a message like Ayn Rand's—like the one in Atlas Shrugged—and believe that there's an audience for that," says Harmon Kaslow, producer of the movie trilogy Atlas Shrugged. The third and final installment, Who is John Galt? will be in theaters on September 12.

Kaslow tells Reason TV's Nick Gillespie that technological advancements are leading to the demise of the liberal Hollywood's monopoly on films. "I think [the Internet] has Hollywood very scared," says Kaslow, "you now have a lot of players who can bring content to anyone on the planet." 

Kaslow also discusses Rand's continuing influence on American audiences and what he hopes audiences will take away from the Atlas Shrugged films.
