As a goof, today I contributed a little mini-screenplay for Atlas Shrugged: The Movie to a comments thread on the blog Ayn Rand Contra Human Nature.
The blog admin was kind enough to hoist this thing from comments and make a separate post out of it.
So I thought I'd link to it.
A few explanatory notes. 1) Angelina Jolie, slated to play Dagny in the movie, is pregnant. 2) The movie is expected to run two and a half hours. 3) The movie will be set in the present day, despite the very dated contents of the book. 4) Vadim Perelman has signed on as the director. 5) Spike Lee's movies are always labeled "A Spike Lee Joint."
So there you go.
Having said all that, I should add that it won't be funny unless you're familiar with the book.
And even then, maybe not.
