I was browsing the Internet to decorate my blog with Angie’s pictures when I stumbled into information pertaining my favorite novel by Ayn Rand “Atlas Shrugged”. I was flabbergasted and (dramatically) furious to find out that the film adaptation has already been filmed and the protagonist character, Dagny Taggart is portrayed by an unknown starlet! Instantaneously, I browsed through Wikipedia and lo! It is confirmed that the film will be assembled by unknown stars!! This is a suicidal attempt for marketable aspect and I have to say that I am furious to know that my favorite novel will be adapted into a film version which is likely to be a BOMB or a TURKEY in the box office! *Sigh*
Ayn Rand, the author who wrote the novel in 1957.
Dagny Taggart is a one brave woman who defy the conventional norm of the 1950s. She is the Vice-President of Taggart Transcontinental, a legacy of her family empire and whilst her brother is the Head, it is mainly of her wise decisions that navigate Taggart Transcontinental as one of supreme railway behemoths in the States. She is also is described as beautiful woman but aloof and with cold-persona. She perceives Bondage (BDSM) as a way that is captivating and sensual- not a bizarre sexual escapism like others think.
Taylor Schilling will be portraying Dagny Taggart. I am sorry, but who is she?
The manifestation of Dagny Taggart. I honestly think she suits the character! GOD!
With that descriptions; I automatically envisioned Angie as Dagny Taggart! Not only she suits with the fetish, but also the superficial qualities. In 2006, I heard Angie was “keen” to be attached to the project and Pitt was said to already obtained the right for the film adaptation but the talk was kept hang-on without any encouraging progress. I did check on the film progress every now and then but to prove to no avail….UNTIL TONIGHT! What a shocking revelation! Geez! Furthermore, all of the characters will be portrayed by non A-lister actors!
The director, Paul Johansson. Serial drama fanatics may know him from ‘One Tree Hill’. I don’t know since I don’t really watch it. Just saw the info in Wikipedia. Please don’t let us DOWN!
Will my favorite masterpiece by Ayn Rand be a BOMB or a BOX-OFFICE? Frankly speaking, I don’t know! Slated for April 2011 next year, we shall know! *Sigh!*
I DON’T LIKE THIS Y’ALL.
