NY Times on Atlas Movie

An update and history of the Atlas Shrugged movie project was published in Sunday’s New York Times. The article discusses the current Baldwin Entertainment Group/Lions Gate project, and is framed by a recounting of past failed projects to bring Rand’s novel to the big screen.
