"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Galt’s Gulch", perhaps?

I posted about the trailer for the movie Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 a few weeks ago. Well, now it seems the film’s producer has revealed he’s thinking of doing Part 3 of the trilogy as a musical. No, really.

Oh, I think making it a musical is an excellent idea, though probably not for reasons Objectivists would like. For some reason, I can see very clearly in my mind’s eye John Galt singing a lightly altered version of “Ya Got Trouble” from The Music Man to an assembled crowd of industrialists.

Honestly, though, I think this must be a joke. But on the other hand, if it is true, I will admit that my prediction that they would be too faithful to Rand’s novel would be quite wrong.


What's your stake in this, cowboy?
