Shooting of the film version of Atlas Shrugged, after years and years of rumors, actually began over the weekend, Variety reports.
No Angelina Jolie as Dagny, no (magically young again) Max von Sydow as John Galt. Also no James Cameron-scale hundred million dollar production. No major studios. Just a humble $5 million independent production.
Shooting started Saturday because the producers were contractually obligated to begin the five-week shoot or lose the rights to Ayn Rand’s novel.
The reported cast includes:
John Galt (Paul Johansson)
Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling)
Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler)
The film does have an IMDB page.
