Angelina Jolie is set to star in the film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s iconic tome “Atlas Shrugged” for Lionsgate.
Howard and Karen Baldwin (“Ray”), who hold the rights to Rand’s most ambitious novel, are producing with Media Talent Group topper Geyer Kosinski, Jolie’s manager.
Jolie, a longtime fan of Rand’s, was eager to play the role of Dagney Taggart, the most powerful female character in any of Rand’s books.
A movie version of the Russian-born author’s novel, which runs more than 1,100 pages, has been long in the making. For years, producer Al Ruddy tried to bring “Atlas Shrugged” to the bigscreen, attracting the interest of Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway along the way.
Årrhhhh jaaaaaaaa…. Det kan kun blive godt.
