COULD A FILM VERSION OF ATLAS SHRUGGED FINALLY BE COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN? A production company has bought the rights to the book, and hired veteran screenwriter James V. Hart (who’s written the screenplays to Contact, Hook, Bram Stocker’s Dracula and Tuck Everlasting.
The press release (linked to above) gives a bit of the background behind the numerous attempts to bring the novel to the screen. It will be interesting to see if this one finally makes it…but I’m not holding my breath waiting for it. (Besides, I can’t hold my breath for three minutes, let alone three years!)
