Atlas Filmed

This is the 5th time that I have written about Atlas Shrugged on this blog, the first time being 18 October 2006.

I got this link from my old friend Tim. The recent increase of government involvement in our economic affairs is again pushing Atlas Shrugged to the fore as a potential film production. It will be an extremely difficult film to adapt. For one thing it is set in a 50's era period where oil production, railroads, and steel were the backbone of the American economy. I don't think it will work as a period piece, so bringing it to the modern era seems essential but thorny.

Let's see if this renewed enthusiasm goes anywhere.
