Angelina Jolie will become the female lead in Lionsgate's film adaptation of Ayn Rand's" Atlas Shrugged."

Again taking role as smart, strong-willed woman, Angelina Jolie has signed on to star in "Atlas Shrugged", a Lionsgate production based on Ayn Rand's iconic novel of the same title.

A longtime fan of Rand's works, Jolie will be billed to portray Dagney Taggart who is described to be the most powerful female character in any of Rand's books. The actress is last seen on the big screen playing opposite her beau, Brad Pitt, in Doug Liman's "Mr and Mrs Smith" and next is set to appear in "The Good Shepherd" which will open in theaters on December 22 this year.

No words yet on the helmer and other cast members, but it has been revealed that James V. Hart will adapt the screenplay while Michael Burns, Geyer Kosinski, Michael Paseornek, plus Howard and Karen Elise Baldwin serving as producers.

The idea to bring up a film version of the book actually has been long in development with producer Al Ruddy tried to work on it for years, along the way drawing the interest of several stars like Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, and Faye Dunaway
