Baldwin Entertainment Group has announced that Atlas Shrugged is in development. [Via September 2005 CyberNet - Part 1.] Scott Holleran has been in contact with Howard Baldwin, CEO and President of B.E.G. Here is an excerpt from his article, The New Orleans Disaster and the Line on 'John Galt'.

It was supposed to be a light column about this and that, with a brief update on a movie adaptation of my favorite novel, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which Miss Rand began writing here in the San Fernando Valley in 1946. It is the story of man's mind on strike. Whether one agrees with Miss Rand's radical philosophy, Objectivism, laid bare in the book, it is an unforgettable masterpiece with grand cinematic potential, a fact recognized by the producer of last year's Oscar-winning Ray, Howard Baldwin, who tells me that he is closer to bringing Ayn Rand's epic to the screen.
