Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie

Variety and others have noted rumors that a movie version of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged may be in the works.

Atlas mentions the rumors that Brad Pitt will play John Galt and Angelina Jolie will play Dagny Taggart.

[In other news, it was announced today that Al Sharpton will play Otto Frank in the upcoming remake of the "Diary of Anne Frank."]

As Atlas wrote:
She [Jolie] can't be a Randite. You can't be a looter and an individualist, maybe in coddlywood you can - but not in the real world.
emphasis in original

I can think of someone much better suited to play Dagny (even though her best role would be as Dominique).
