‘Atlas’ pic mapped

Ayn Rand’s most ambitious novel may finally be brought to the bigscreen after years of false starts. Lionsgate has picked up worldwide distribution rights to “Atlas Shrugged.” Angelina Jolie, a longtime devotee of Rand’s, and Brad Pitt, also a fan, are rumored to be circling the leading roles of Dagny Taggart and John Galt. “Atlas Shrugged,” which runs more than 1,100 pages, has faced a lengthy and circuitous journey to a film adaptation.The Russian-born author’s seminal tome, published in 1957, revolves around the economic collapse of the U.S. sometime in the future and espouses her individualistic philosophy of objectivism. The violent, apocalyptic ending has always posed a challenge but could prove especially so in the post-9/11 climate.
