Pitt And Jolie To Team Up For Atlas Shrugged?

After years of delays, AYN RAND's famous novel ATLAS SHRUGGED is being made into a feature film starring BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE, according to media reports in the US. Lionsgate Films has bought the rights to the film version of the 1957 novel, considered in many polls to be one of the most influential books in history. According to Hollywood trade paper Variety, the MR AND MRS SMITH co-stars, who are both fans of the Russian novelist, would play the lead roles of DAGNY TAGGART and JOHN GAULT. The story revolves around the economic collapse of the US sometime in the future and espouses Rand's philosophy of objectivism. RAY producers HOWARD and KAREN BALDWIN will adapt the 1,100 page novel into a feature film. CLINT EASTWOOD, ROBERT REDFORD and FAYE DUNAWAY have previously been attached to the project over the years.

Atlas Shrugged has to be one of the best books I have ever read. I would also like to see The Fountainhead remade. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be excellent as Dagny and John, but who will play Reardon?Anhri
