Vadim Perelman is no longer going to direct the film of Atlas Shrugged.

Nuts.

Perelman was saying all the right things, and his choice of how to deal with the background of the story, which is incongruous with present reality, was ingenious (without making it explicit, the story was going to take place in an alternate reality that diverged from ours somewhere between WWI and WWII, and be set in the late 1940s or early 50s, partly so that he could make use of the styles of the time).

Not only that, but given his personal experience, Perelman just seemed like the right guy to direct the film.

I can’t imagine who might direct it who could bring more to the film than he would have.
