The Atlasphere has published a lengthy new interview with ATLAS SHRUGGED – PART I movie Producer John Aglialoro titled “John Aglialoro on the Atlas Shrugged Movie.”
Aglialoro answers questions about the movie’s history, the challenges he faced in getting the movie made, how the current script is different from previous ones, his impressions of director Paul Johansson, the latest release date information, and what the movie’s actual budget is likely to turn out to be.
From the introduction:
Who is John Aglialoro? Probably no one since Ayn Rand has invested so much in Atlas Shrugged. For nearly two decades he has championed the novel — financially, intellectually, logistically — because he was determined to make a movie that would do justice to Rand’s masterpiece.
Ranked by Forbes Small Business as the 10th richest executive of any small publicly-traded company (revenues under $200 million) in 2007, Aglialoro is one of those rare corporate executives who fully “gets” the philosophical message in Atlas Shrugged. And he wants the rest of the world to get it, too — by seeing it on the big screen.
