Film Rights Acquired to Rand’s Anthem

This comes via Iris Bell:

Rights have been acquired to the Ayn Rand novel Anthem. Jim Snider and Kerry O’Quinn are co-writing the screenplay for theatrical production.

At one time, choreographer Agnes DeMille, and later Russian expatriate Rudolph Nureyev, liked the idea of turning Anthem into a ballet. Walt Disney even expressed interest in developing the novel as an animated film, but Anthem never made it to stage or screen. That is all about to change.

Writer/Producer Jim Snider’s most recent film is Hope Ranch, starring Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon-5), Lorenzo Lamas (Falcon Crest, Renegade) and Gail O’Grady (NYPD Blue, American Dreams).

Writer/Producer Kerry O’Quinn built a New York magazine empire including Starlog and Fangoria, produced soundtrack albums, and developed a sci-fi series for HBO.

Pre-production is slated to begin in 2004.
