Hollywood could soon be going Objectivist

After decades in development hell, Ayn Rand’s capitalism-minded “Atlas Shrugged” is taking new steps toward the big screen — with one of the film world’s most prominent money men potentially at its center.

They'll ruin it.
There's NO WAY you can put 1100 pages of novel into a two-hour Hollywood movie.
It would be hard to do in a 10-hour miniseries.
I read this book for the first time in College in 1971, and just recently started reading it again. I thought it was an exceptionally good read back then, and I felt a bond with Rearden and Taggert.
I still do.....

I agree that it is, to say the least, highly unlikely that Atlas Shrugged would work as a movie.

Especially if Howard and Karen Baldwin are related the Baldwin Brothers.

(As opposed to Adam Baldwin, who makes it clear he is NOT related to Those Baldwin Brothers...)

I have no doubt they'll turn it into "Bonfire of Inanities"
