Post Atlas Shrugged Part 3 film
Part 3 has been given the greenlight:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/billfrezza/ ... atlas-iii/


From the Forbes article:

Quote:
And here is where Aglialoro plans his surprise, a scene that does not exist in the book that he nonetheless hopes to include in the third part of the film trilogy. He believes that our troubled times require an alliance between champions of reason and free market capitalism and conservative religious practitioners, for without such an alliance both causes will be lost.

“Most people have a respect for spirituality, maybe even a yearning. There must be room in Objectivism for charity and benevolence. Remember, Rand struggled with the character of the priest, who appeared in early drafts of Atlas Shrugged but didn’t make the final cut. I am going to put him back.”

It’s not much. But it will be a gentle repudiation of the militant atheism that characterizes many Objectivists. Will purists raise a ruckus?


The added scene, Father Amadeus was his name.

Peikoff: "Father Amadeus was Taggart's priest, to whom he confessed his sins. The priest was supposed to be a positive character honestly devoted to the good but practicing consistently the morality of mercy. Miss Rand dropped him, she told me, when she found that it was impossible to make such a character convincing."

I don't think this is a good idea. At all.

If the producer is in fact just saying this scene as a trial balloon, let's make sure we pop it!

TAKE HIM OUT! DON'T PUT HIM BACK!

No room for charity crap!

Read or listen to Tara Smith about charity, generosity, etc. Don't make room for it in this movie!

I see no wisdom in challenging Rand's vision of her own work.

Boo.
