“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Atlas Shrugged....the movie.....FINALLY!!!

Fans of Atlas have been waiting for this for a very long time....

From Variety -- The long-brewing feature version of author Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" has begun shooting in Los Angeles as a $5 million indie produced by John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow.
Cameras began rolling over the weekend on a five-week shoot for "Atlas Shrugged Part One" with Paul Johansson directing from Brian Patrick O'Toole's script.


Paul Johansson ("One Tree Hill").....John Galt

Taylor Schilling ("Mercy)......Dagny Taggart

Grant Bowler ("Ugly Betty")......Hank Reardon

Apparently it'll be done in three parts since it's such a long story. I seriously hope they do it right. I'll be profoundly disappointed if they miss the points and pollute it with predictable Hollywood liberalism.
