Atlas Shrugged: Part III is an upcoming film based on the novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. It is a sequel to the 2012 film Atlas Shrugged: Part II, continuing the story where its predecessor left off. The film was announced on the film's Facebook page on February 2, 2013 with principal photography to start in Autumn 2013,[2] but the trade press reported that shooting began in January, 2014.[1] The release date for part III of the series, originally set for July 4, 2014,[3] is now set for September, 2014.[1]

In an interview with Bill Frezza of Forbes, the producer John Aglialoro mentioned that the film would include a short dialogue between the heroine Dagny Taggart and a priest, a character which he said Ayn Rand struggled with and ultimately cut out of the original book.[4][3]

A month before the release of Part I, Aglialoro suggested that Part III might be made into a musical.[5] More recently he promised to create, "Something closer to the book", and predicted that critics would pan the film.[6] In a YouTube promotional piece where organizers discussed the film, he asserted that it was vital for the team to have a director who is professional, collaborative, and knows Rand's work: "I don't care if I've got to fire five directors — that's fine. We're going to get it right."[7]

David Kelley, founder of The Atlas Society and an expert on the philosophical themes of Atlas Shrugged, will consult on the script, as he did for Parts I and II.[8]

The film will be directed by James Manera. Cinematographer will be Gale Tattersal.
