Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?
has wrapped up filming and is now moving through post production. In this third installment of the Atlas Shrugged
movie series, we will finally get a sustained look at the character of John Galt, in contrast to the mere glimpses we’ve had of him throughout the first and second parts.
