Atlas Bombed

We had to laugh when we saw this item:
"'Atlas Shrugged: Part 1,' the low-budget adaptation of the first third of (Ayn) Rand’s dystopian novel, grossed $4.6 million during its five-week theatrical run this spring. After the film drew scathing reviews, producer John Aglialoro said he was reconsidering whether to move forward with two sequels. Now Aglialoro has resumed those efforts, according to producer Harmon Kaslow, and will devote all revenue from the release of “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1” to financing 'Atlas Shrugged: Part 2.'"
Since sequels are often less profitable than the original movie, we're hoping the producer has six or more sequels planned.
