The trailer for the $5 million Atlas Shrugged Part I, the adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel, is now online [....]. In the film, Dagny Taggart ([Taylor] Schilling) runs Taggart Transcontinental, the largest remaining railroad company in America, with intelligence, courage and integrity, despite the systematic disappearance of her best and most competent workers. She is drawn to industrialist Henry Rearden ([Grant] Bowler), one of the few men whose genius and commitment to his own ideas match her own. Rearden’s super-strength metal alloy, Rearden Metal, holds the promise that innovation can overcome the slide into anarchy.

Report from the set of the movie City of Ember.
Scattered throughout the city [set] are posters celebrating everyone doing their jobs. They're classic '40s and '50s style posters, like the cover of an Ayn Rand novel.

Atlas Shrugged movie |Atlas Shrugged |
Interview with the writer/director.
[Q:] You've optioned and adapted a few books, so as far as having the original author involved, what's your take on that? [A:] So far, I've had three, now four, adaptations that I've done to date. I did "The Giver" which is like a big huge young adult novels, and then I'm just in the process of doing “Atlas Shrugged”... well, that author is dead, but she has millions of minions that are watching over me. [Q:] I know a lot of people who consider that book their favorite book, and it's a really hard book to try and adapt. [A:] It's kind of like "Lord of the Rings" in a way. There's a very vocal fandom and community and very intelligent ones at that, so you can't really f**k around with them.
