It's been almost a year since we brought you news of Atlas Shrugged, but for once, it wasn't because of development hell. It was because this feature -- which Hollywood has tried to whip up for the last 30 years -- was finally getting life as a television miniseries. But after such a long stretch, this news is too big to ignore. Last July, the project got a boost when Charlize Theron's name started circling the feature, and her involvement was conditional on the project not losing "many of the nuances" of Ayn Rand's famous novel, which pushed the feature into television miniseries land.

The Theron star-power is now gone, but the miniseries spin has remained, a cast has been collected, and cameras finally started rolling over the weekend, officially ending the adaptation's exorbitant development hell. Hit the jump for the details.
