For the moment, let's try to leave aside the politics and philosophy of Ayn Rand -- after all, only so many words can really be expounded on a point of view that ultimately comes down to not giving a shit about your fellow human beings. There's a reason that it's taken over half a century for a film adaptation of Rand's magnum opus, "Atlas Shrugged," to reach screens; as well as being an awful sociopath (her ideal man was a convicted murderer who kidnapped, disemboweled and chopped the legs off a twelve year old girl), Rand was also a terrible writer, whose books are full of leaden prose, heavy-handed metaphor and very little drama.

Perhaps the least well-known script ever to top the Black List and still get made, "Recount," from former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" actor Danny Strong (who most recently penned "The Butler," which is set to team Lee Daniels and Denzel Washington), went behind the scenes of the drama of the 2000 election, and the controversial series of recounts in Florida that (eventually) saw George W. Bush defeat Al Gore for the Presidency.

Nothing Confirmed Just YetUpdate: THR confirms that Marion Cotillard is in discussions for "The Dark Knight Rises" but that "nothing has been confirmed yet." Christopher Nolan is apparently on the hunt for a love interest for Bruce Wayne with Kate Winslet and the previously linked Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts all reading/meeting with the director in recent weeks. Should Cotillard sign on she would start shooting in June and wrap in November. So this writer's guess that it might be a smaller role is way off -- has Bruce Wayne found his love?

Bark all you want about how the early months have become a viable period for movie going in terms of both box office and quality, this past January was the least-attended opening month in 29 years. This February weekend seemed actively spiteful towards anybody who sought challenging fare, with the main attractions being yet another low-energy Adam Sandler programmer and a concert film featuring an adorable moppet running into the double digits in his fifteen minutes of fame.
