Atlas Crapped

[adrotate banner=”1″]The Free Market just went all John Galt on Atlas Shrugged Part 1 (of 3), preventing the two sequels from being made.

Luckily, the producer is a man and accepts that decision…just kidding! He’s a big baby like all Libertarians and is whining about “critics”!

“Critics, you won,” said John Aglialoro, the businessman who spent 18 years and more than $20 million of his own money to make, distribute and market “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1,” which covers the first third of Rand’s dystopian novel. “I’m having deep second thoughts on why I should do Part 2.”

“The New York Times gave us the most hateful review of all,” said Aglialoro, who also has a writing credit on the movie. “They didn’t cover it.”

No, wait, he’s Going Galt from making Ayn Rand films!
“Why should I put up all of that money if the critics are coming in like lemmings?” Aglialoro said. “I’ll make my money back and I’ll make a profit, but do I wanna go and do two? Maybe I just wanna see my grandkids and go on strike.”

Can’t even keep a consistent excuse during one simple interview. If you want to see Atlas Shrugged Part 1, I’m sure some conservative astroturf organization will buy like a million dvds to give away free and you can see it then.

But first…
he has a dramatic script called “Poker Room” in development. “Maybe the critics will be kinder to that one,” he said.

I can’t wait. To not watch that, either.
