Looks like the light I talked about is breaking through. They are finally going to make a movie of Ayn Rand's, "Atlas Shrugged."
You can read about it here:
The amazing, and perhaps disappointing thing is the female stars being considered for the female lead -- which are: Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway.
All three of these actresses have a belief system in complete opposition to Ayn Rand and are big Obama supporters. They attack anyone who is for tax cuts and individual effort.
In the movie about George Bush called "W", Josh Brolin, Barbra Streisand's son-in-law, played Bush, and Richard Dreyfuss, an extreme liberal, played Cheney.
Then in the 2003 movie "The Reagans", The President was played by Barbra Streisand's ultra-liberal husband, James Brolin, and one of Woody Allen's favorite actresses, Judy Davis. The producers were also very liberal.
Why do those who despise the free market go out of their way to make and star in movies about free market supporters?
Is part of the motive to diffuse the power of ideas they oppose? I think there is some truth to this.
At least we have Ryan Kavanaugh producing this movie who seems to be fairly objective, but the end result will be largely determined by the director, actors, and others involved.
