Ayn Rand Adaptation: Can Atlas Shrugged Work as a Film?

Yesterday Reason.tv took a behind the scenes peek at an upcoming adaptation of Ayn Rand‘s sprawling novel, Atlas Shrugged.

What do you think? Is it possible to film Rand’s massive book?

Here’s an excerpt from the post: “Director Paul Johansson (One Tree Hill) and Grant Bowler (Lost, True Blood, Ugly Betty), who plays Henry Rearden, discuss the perils, pressures, and pleasure involved in telling the epic tale of a society where the ‘men of the mind’ go on strike and refuse to contribute to a collectivist world.” (Via Mike Cane)
