Who else is excited about Atlas Shrugged Part III ?

Atlas Shrugged Part III BannerThere is a good discussion of Atlas Shrugged Part II on Goodreads.com. The third part is coming out in 2014. The producers of parts 1 and 2 are working on it now. There is a website (Atlas Shrugged Movie) and a forum (Galt’s Gulch Online) that you can pass along your thoughts and suggestions.I encourage you to do so. They have been very responsive, especially on the forum.

Galt’s Gulch Online

Galt’s Gulch Online is a forum for fans of Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged (the book and the movie). It’s a great forum with a lot of activity. And it’s an interesting format that I haven’t seen before (let me know if you have other examples). As a submitting participant, I was encouraged to reference articles outside of the forum (with URL addresses) so that forum readers can read and comment first hand. Then the threads start flying back and forth. I joined a month ago and I still feel like I have only scratched the surface of what the site has to offer.

Atlas Shrugged Part III

The press release said the following:

Atlas Shrugged Part 3, the third and final installment of the Atlas Shrugged movie trilogy, has been officially greenlit with principal photography to begin later this year.

The movie trilogy follows the three-part structure of Ayn Rand’s epic 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged. Atlas Shrugged Part 3 takes place in a near future dystopian United States with the nation’s economy quickly approaching collapse. While overreaching government regulations persist in strangling the country’s few remaining entrepreneurs, society’s most productive continue to mysteriously disappear. One man has the answer. Some will stop at nothing to control him. Others will stop at nothing to save him. Who is John Galt?

Yes, the movie is coming out in 2014. The best place to read about it is on the Atlas Shrugged Movie website. There are some additional sources of information about Part III of the movie floating around the internet. The articles run the gamut of favorable to disparaging. See for yourself.

What other interesting commentary have you seen or do you have? What do you think about the Atlas Shrugged Movie site and Galt’s Gulch Online?
