Randall Wallace Opens the "Atlas"

Oscar-nominated screenwriter Randall Wallace has been assigned to pen the script of "Atlas Shrugged."

Progress on "Atlas Shrugged" keeps going smooth indeed. After successfully bringing Angelina Jolie into its cast list, the project now has "Pearl Harbor" writer Randall Wallace onboard to pen the script, Variety has learned.

Following this, Wallace will start writing immediately with an aim to finish the stint before he begins production next year on "The Mercenary", a Catherine the Great epic previously titled "Love and Honor" which also features Jolie as the female lead.

A Baldwin Entertainment Group production, "Atlas" is an adaptation of Ayn Rand's 1957 best-selling novel of the same title which follows a no-nonsense railroad executive Dagny Taggart as she tries to keep her company alive in spite of repeated encroachment by a society falling toward collectivism/altruism/statism.
