A few fun facts about the film adaptation of Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand's very long 1957 novel.
1. The movie will be in three parts, although only the first volume currently has a scheduled release date.
2. At various times, famous people such as Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Russell Crowe, and Brad Pitt have been linked to the film at various times. None of those people are in this version.
3. The trailer debuted at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week and will premiere on April 15th.
4. Director Paul Johansson is apparently best known for appearances on One Tree Hill, but for me, he'll always be Beverly Hills 90210's evil frat brother John Sears, who set Steve Sanders up for a crime he didn't commit.
