After over 30 years of false starts, 'Atlas Shrugged' is becoming a movie.

Variety reports that the long in-development film adaptation of Ayn Rand's 1957 novel has begun production in Los Angeles. The film is a $5 million indie project produced by John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow.

'Atlas Shrugged' takes place in a dystopian alternate reality in which society has collapsed as the government has seized increasing control over industry. The massive novel is divided into three parts, each consisting of ten chapters.
