RandHoward Baldwin, the Oscar-nominated producer of Ray, is pretty excited about the progress his adaptation of Objectivist champion Ayn Rand's 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged is making in coming to the screen. In Scott Holleran's inaugural column over at Box Office Mojo, Howard suggests that his underdog heroine, businesswoman Dagny Taggert, is "the greatest character ever written for an actress." The film is as yet uncast, but Baldwin promises to be true to Rand's vision. The best anyone has ever done in translating Rand's work for the screen was with the fascist Italian epic We, The Living (1943), but only after a meticulous restoration and re-editing.
