Is this great news or terrible news? Not sure. The thought of the message of Atlas Shrugged making its way to the great unwashed is titillating. The thought of Follywood doing it, is depressing. I was always secretly happy that the left coast hadn't gotten its grubby, collectivist paws over Rand's great gift to the smallest minority of all, the individual. In fairness, they didn't destroy The Fountainhead,......but those were vastly different times.
Robert Bidinotto of The New Individualist is reporting that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, huge Ayn Rand fans apparently (!), are set to star in what is arguably the most important philosophical magnum opus ever written. I live by it.
Then READ HERE about the interest of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in starring. (You would have known that Pitt and Jolie are huge Ayn Rand fans, incidentally, if you saw the latest issue of The New Individualist.)
Citing an industry article whose author is a leftarded idiot
"The weighty tome focuses on railroad executive Dagny Taggart, who feels crushed by society's evil shift toward collectivism or something silly like that."
Yeah "something silly" that results in the death of 100 million outside of war. By why quibble with "silly" details. Yeah, that bad, even calling The Fountainhead kid lit (I wish kids were reading it.)
Angelina taking a full page ad in USA today for Darfur. Very cool thing to do, trend glomming.

UPDATE: Ugh (hat tip Jer)-- She can't be a Randite. You can't be a looter and an individualist, maybe in coddlywood you can - but not in the real world.
