Zack Snyder trying to make Rand's "Fountainhead"

Postby Zarniwoop » Thu May 31, 2018 11:21 am

Just read an article that Zack Snyder is looking to try to re-make Rand's "Fountainhead" into a movie. (it was once done in the 40s or 50s if I recall).

I'd love to see this...the book is much better than Atlas Shrugged (though the writing itself still sucks, the story is better).

I can see someone like Snyder doing it really well....Roark (the main guy in the book) is an anti-hero hero...a little bit like what Snyder did with Superman. He's kind of a guy that just says "**** you" to everyone. He's a guy that everyone will delight in when they see themselves in his character and more importantly in his struggle against conservatism, conformism, traditionalism, etc. His character is based on Frank Lloyd Wright. The great Gary Cooper played him in the first movie. I can see someone like John Hamm or Steve Buscemi or even better Christopher Walken playing him now.

I'll watch for the slow motion fight scenes.

Enjoyed the book, but Snyder is not the right director imo. Low expectations.

I don't know much about him....I only saw 2 of his films, superman and 300.

i really liked his vision with 300...basically making a movie of how people remember historical events and how they get contorted and blown up in our memories in a hyperbolic dream-scape sort of way. I also liked some of the stuff he did with that Superman movie (the first one he did - Man of Steel)....though I am not a comic book movie guy and have little knowledge of how "true" his vision is to DC or Marvel or whoever Superman is with


what makes you think he couldn't handle the story?
