The Hollywood Reporter: Risky Biz Blog
Rand's book was written over 60 years ago. All Hollywood is doing now is pandering, which is par for the course for them. If they ever get tired of acting, I can put them to work whoring themselves out in the Cass Corridor. Probably a more fitting occupation for them.
this is awesome!
I can't wait to see a movie about how we need to deregulate the markets, get out of the way of wall street, and reduce taxes on the mega-rich.
Is it going to be a comedy?
Great timing! If this movie comes out anytime during Obama's reign, it will probably be the biggest movie of the year.
That depends on how they do it, knowing Holywood they will twist her work into a pro socialist story wheer the evil self relaint capitalists get waht's coming to them, as opposed to the true core of the work, which is social engineering by governments doesn't work.
anyone who still subscribes to ayn rand's hogwash lasszize-faiire libertarian fantasies, after the shit that just happened, is an unequivocable and unredeemable moron.
Teddy Roosevelt busted the trusts a hundred years ago.
But they keep coming back.
I'm not a huge fan of Rand, but I don't think it's fair to place the blame for our current situation on Randians. Our current problems were caused by the power elite who have been running this country for 60+ years. Dems and GOP.
As much as I liked the book, it's pretty clear that Rand's ideas failed. The whole every man for himself thing doesn't work real well and there's no such thing as trickle down when the John Galt's of the world succeed.
The thing that bugs me about Rand is that she never addressed political contributions. Her novels were based upon mavericks who had problems with politicians yet never bothered to schmooze them. Not very realistic.
