Atlas Shrugged: The motion picture

Variety has the scoop:

The long-brewing feature version of author Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" has begun shooting in Los Angeles as a $5 million indie produced by John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow. Cameras began rolling over the weekend on a five-week shoot for "Atlas Shrugged Part One" with Paul Johansson directing from Brian Patrick O'Toole's script. Aglialoro would have lost the feature rights if the film wasn't in production by Saturday.

Considering the years of rumors about a big-budget adaptation of the enormous best-seller -- which has become a hit again in the age of the tea party -- this is pretty small scale.
