…the icy divide over the God issue shows clear signs of melt. Gradual movement toward accommodation is coming not just from Christians wishing to co-opt Ayn Rand’s capitalistic ethic, but from Randians seeking to expand their fan base.

  1. Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand What it’s about: A single individual brings the world to a halt by persuading the world’s innovators to withdraw from it. Fun factoid: One of the last movies that Steve Jobs saw was the critically panned Atlas Shrugged: Part 1. Best quote: “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists … it is real … it is possible … it’s yours.”

[Taylor Schilling] was the lead in the 2011 movie Atlas Shrugged, based on the cult novel by Ayn Rand, but correctly describes the film as “a disaster”.

The Massachusetts-raised, Fordham University-educated Schilling had headlined a network TV series (“Mercy”) and appeared in the Oscar-winning “Argo” and movies adapted from novels by Ayn Rand (“Atlas Shrugged: Part I”) and Nicholas Sparks (“The Lucky One”) before landing the role of the bisexual yuppie inmate Piper Chapman in “Orange Is the New Black,” Jenji Kohan’s groundbreaking streaming series.

[Taylor] Schilling had one season on the short-lived NBC drama Mercy under her belt, along with some minor film roles (including one in that recent, ill-advised adaptation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged).

Atlas was founded to distribute three films based on Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged and, since those movies were released, the company has shifted to acquiring other films.

Director Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert starring Nicole Kidman and James Franco has been picked up by Atlas Distribution Co., marking the first time the entity will distribute a movie without Atlas Shrugged in the title. …

The Atlas Shrugged movies, of course, were based on Ayn Rand’s novel of the same name that is infused with individualistic themes that [Harmon] Kaslow says are present in Queen of the Desert as well.

“Gertrude Bell was a real-life Randian hero,” Kaslow said. “This is exactly the type of film we hope to bring to the masses with Atlas Distribution – an incredible heroine who thought for herself, took orders from no one and had a lasting impact on the world.”
