‘Atlas Shrugged: Part 2′ Still a Go

Conservatives and libertarians love them some Ayn Rand, but the theatrical adaptation of her most beloved book, “Atlas Shrugged:Part 1,” made just $4.6 million dollars at the box office.

That’s not stopping producers¬†John Aglialoro, Harmon Kaslow, and new producer¬†Duncan Scott from moving ahead with the project. They announced today that principal photography will start in April on “Atlas Shrugged: Part 2.”

Atlas is a metaphor for taxpayers who hold up society and the book is a dense but philosophic story of hard-working, tax-paying supporters of society who start to go missing.

The first movie was widely panned by critics.

Maybe Atlas needs a back brace.
