Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has only a week to go before it hits theaters, but that hasn’t stopped the director from discussing possible future projects. From what we know so far, it might be the first George Washington biopic ever made — or it might be an adaptation of author Ayn Rand’s first successful novel, The Fountainhead.

Rand’s novel was previously adapted into the 1949 King Vidor film of the same name that starred Gary Cooper, Patricia Neal and Raymond Massey, however the movie received mostly negative reviews upon its release, and it failed to make back its production budget of $2.5 million. And although Rand wrote the screenplay and her reaction to the big screen take on her book was initially positive, the author later criticized several aspects of the film.

We’ll have to wait and see if Snyder is developing the project as a potential directing gig or producing vehicle…

…if Snyder does have Randian sympathies, then a few other things fall into place. His appreciation of the work of Frank Miller and 300. His increasing the audience engagement with Rorschach in Watchmen. And, for Man Of Steel...

Not once does Jonathan Kent teach Clark about the value of public service or helping people. And Superman in the end is only really acting in his own self interest.

Physically he certainly fits the model of the Randian hero, as do his morals. Stephen Newman compared the Randian hero to the concept of Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Superman” saying that “the Randian hero is really Nietzsche’s superman in the guise of the entrepreneur”.

Is this the Superman we have now? An Ayn Rand Superman? In that case why is he going up against free market businessman Bruce Wayne in the new film…?

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.

Of course Zack Snyder is working on a Fountainhead movie.
