Atlas no longer shrugs?

06.18.2007
Cinematical recently opened a fortune cookie which told them today would be the greatest day of their lives. Sure enough, as promised, they got a chance to talk to Angelina Jolie at a press junket. While in the presence of unmatched beauty, they slipped her all the usual pick-up lines, such as 'Do you know what would look good on you? Me' and 'Hey baby, what's the status of your upcoming movie, ATLAS SHRUGGED? PS I love you'. Jolie ignored the former, but had the following to say about the latter:

"...the thing with Atlas is just, we all feel that it's one of those projects where if you can't do it right, you really can't touch it. So we have not had all the pieces come together. There's not been a director that's right to come on, or all of those elements. So until it does, you know, I certainly don't want to be a part of something that's just put together to hit 'this date."

If only more people felt that way. ATLAS SHRUGGED is a classic piece of philosophical literature and if you think Spidey geeks are militant when Sam Raimi f*cks with Venom, I'd wager that Ayn Rand fanatics would be slightly more peeved, and infinitely more articulate in their abuse if someone failed to do ATLAS justice.

Extra Tidbit: I'd recommend Aronofsky to direct ATLAS SHRUGGED, but then again I'd recommend him to direct every film ever made from now on.

Great News

The less Ayn Rand, the better. The Fountainhead flick is one of the great flops of the '50s, and there is no need to repeat history.

I rather have Rachel Weisz than Angelina Jolie, Weisz is a much better actress. Anyway Angelina is talking B.S., Sin City 2 may not even get made at this point.

No offense to fellow fanboys, but it should be Rachel Weisz playing Ava, not Jolie.

Good for them on holding off. It would be interesting to see that book adapted but to be honest, with all of the loooong monologues and pretty slow pace of the book, it's probably best to be left to those who really want to learn about the subject matter by reading it.
