Well, “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?” is still an actual thing that is happening and the producers are continuing a trend that they started with the second film: bringing in an entirely new cast. For the final installment of the trilogy, John Galt will be played by Kristoffer Polaha (“Devil’s Knot”), Laura Regan (“Unbreakable,” “Mad Men”) will play Dagny Taggart, and the rest of the main cast includes Rob Morrow, Eric Allan Kramer, and Joaquim de Almeida. Production on the film has just begun and producers are hoping to release the film this upcoming September, right in time for the midterm elections.

If the market has dictated anything it's that no one cares about "Atlas Shrugged." The reception to the trilogy has been pretty dismal both critically and commercially, with the first part earning $4.6 million and second even less, with $3.3 million. The budget on the first movie alone was $20 million and something tells us Ayn Rand herself would tell the filmmakers to get out of this while they still can. Somehow $10 million more dollars is being spent on a third installment, and the filmmakers want your money.

They say that the definition of madness is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result, but sometimes movies are made for a simple reason: because you can. It certainly doesn't hurt when funding comes from multi-millionaire John Aglialoro, who has the rights to Ayn Rand's famed "Atlas Shrugged," and seemingly has no problem continuing to lose money on the feature film trilogy. There's probably an an objectivist lesson in all of this, but we'll let Aglialoro figure it out himself. At any rate, the third installment in the series no one cares about is coming.
