Continuing the proposed three-film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged Part II follows the 2011 release with a new set of actors, including Samantha Mathis, Jason Beghe, Patrick Fabien, Richard T. Jones, Esai Morales and Diedrich Bader. The official plot synopsis is as follows:
The global economy is on the brink of collapse. Unemployment has risen to 24%. Gas is now $ 42 per gallon. Brilliant creators, from artists to industrialists, continue to mysteriously disappear at the hands of the unknown.
Dagny Taggart, Vice President in Charge of Operations for Taggart Transcontinental, has discovered what may very well be the answer to a mounting energy crisis – found abandoned amongst the ruins of a once productive factory, a revolutionary motor that could seemingly power the World.
But, the motor is dead… there is no one left to decipher its secret… and, someone is watching.
It’s a race against the clock to find the inventor before the motor of the World is stopped for good.
Atlas Shrugged Part II will receive a limited release on October 12th.
