Late 1999 News: "TNT is developing Ayn Rand's classic 1957 novel "Atlas Shrugged" as a four-hour miniseries, the cable network announced. The novel centers around Dagny Taggart, a woman who confronts bureaucracy in her job as manager of a transcontinental railroad; and John Galt, a man who attempts to stop the world. "Atlas Shrugged" is largely viewed as the most complete fictional presentation of objectivism, Rand's personal philosophy. Albert S. Ruddy ("The Godfather" trilogy) will executive produce the $15-20 million drama. He first approached Rand about attaining rights to the novel 25 years ago, but when the author insisted on final script approval, he backed away from the deal. The property has subsequently changed hands numerous times. TNT will likely begin production in summer 2000. No air date has been scheduled yet."

-- The script for the upcoming film version of Atlas Shrugged has finally been finished, after six months of struggling to capture the essence of the 1,150 page book. As reported in USA Today, producer Alan Ruddy "plans a two-parter: two hours for the first, three for the finale. 'We're going to start talking to actors and directors.' He says Ted Turner loves the script, as do leaders of the late Rand's Objectivist philosophy movement. Acknowledging 'you lose about 75% of the book,' Ruddy says the script maintains the integrity of Rand's themes. He can pay $1 million for the actress to play railroad owner Dagny Taggart, and seven figures also for the Hank Rearden actor. Ruddy hopes to begin shooting Atlas in February; it could air next fall."

-- Meanwhile, Prodos.com has published an earlier interview with producer Alan Ruddy, screenwriter Susan Black, and Australian movie expert Bill Collins, regarding the Atlas project. It's here: http://www.prodos.com/transcript/atlasmovie.html.     -Forwarded to me by Karen Minto
