A new story in Politico includes fresh information about the second installment of the Atlas Shrugged trilogy, from producer Harmon Kaslow. Excerpts:
“Right now, it’ll probably be 30 to 40 minutes longer than the first movie. The first one was about an hour and a half and a lot of those faithful to the book said they really wished we would have given them more out of the book. … We’re going to slow things down a little bit and let people enjoy what they experienced in the book, in the theater.”…
Kaslow is realistic about what he can afford, but said, “We’re going to aspire to get the biggest names that we possibly can” while also being faithful to the book’s characters and who’s best for those roles. Some of the new actors will step into roles played by others in Part 1….
Kaslow said he hopes to start production in early 2012, “with hopes of previewing it around the time of the nominating conventions.”
