Zack Snyder is making a movie about Ayn Rand’s book, The Fountainhead? Ooooooh! Man of Steel is… an Objectivist take on Superman! Now it all makes sense.

Look for Rand of Steel in bargain DVD bins sometime in the next decade.

Il primo progetto si intitolerà The Last Photograph e narrerà la storia di un fotografo di guerra al lavoro in Afghanistan, mentre il secondo riguarda un nuovo adattamento cinematografico di La Fonte Meravigliosa (The Fountainhead), opera letteraria di Ayn Rand che fu già adattata per il grande schermo nel 1949, diretta da King Vidor con protagonista Gary Cooper.

“Ho lavorato a La Fonte Meravigliosa”, ha fatto sapere Snyder, “Ho sempre pensato che fosse come una tesi sul processo creativo e sul creare qualcosa. La Warner Bros. detiene i diritti e lo script di Ayn Rand, ho lavorato un po’ su quello”.

It’s little more than an aside in a bigger THR piece about Zack and Deborah Snyder’s plans for the post-Batman V Superman DC movie universe. But it appears that, in rare moments of spare time, Zack Snyder is working on an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s anti-utopian, anti-altruist novel The Fountainhead.

Rand’s right-wing bible was previously filmed in 1949 by King Vidor, from a screenplay by the author herself. “Warner Bros. owns [that] script,” Snyder explains, “and I’ve just been working on that a little bit. I’ve always felt like The Fountainhead was such a thesis on the creative process and what it is to create something.”

Zack Snyder hat nicht nur Superheldenfilme im Kopf, der Regisseur von „Batman V Superman“ arbeitet offenbar auch an „The Fountainhead“, der Verfilmung des Romans „Der ewige Quell“.

Nun ist noch ein Projekt auf seiner To-Do-Liste gelandet, das mit Superhelden wenig zu tun hat. In einem Interview mit dem Hollywood Reporter verriet der Regisseur kürzlich, er wolle den Roman The Fountainhead von Ayn Rand für die große Leinwand adaptieren, einen ewigen Favoriten eher konservativer Leser. Darin geht es um einen Wettstreit moderner Architekten, der sich bis in deren Privatleben ausweitet.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director also revealed to The Hollywood Reporter his involvement in an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.

“I’ve always felt like The Fountainhead was such a thesis on the creative process and what it is to create something,” he said. “Warner Bros. owns [Ayn Rand’s] script and I’ve just been working on that a little bit.”

…knowing that Snyder loves Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead a lot of things snap into place. Especially things about Man of Steel and Pa Kent’s absolutely baffling worldview: Snyder’s an Objectivist. He believes in what Objectivists call ‘rational self-interest,’ which others might call 'radical selfishness,’ which is the belief that the ultimate moral duty you have is to make yourself happy. Honestly, all the Pa Kent stuff becomes crystal clear now - Man of Steel is about a superhero who only becomes a superhero when it is in his own self-interest (ie, the planet’s about to get destroyed). Otherwise he’s happy keeping his powers to himself, seeing no need to use them to help others.

Talking to the Hollywood Reporter Snyder says that he wants to go back to the wellspring of Objectivist thought, Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead, the novel that started it all. It’s pretty bad, but it’s also super fucking insane.

If you’ll remember, some Ayn Rand fanboys – Shruggalos, as I like to call them – financed a three-part adaptation of Atlas Shrugged, partly through Kickstarter, the third of which came out in 2014. Of course, you can’t bring up Ayn Rand’s name without immediately thinking of the radical libertarians she inspired, but if my hazy memory of The Fountainehead is accurate, her individualized ethos was confined mainly to the creative process, where some might argue it belongs.
