'Atlas Shrugged' heads to DVD this fall -- and a sequel won't be far behind

Kaslow said the release of "Atlast Shrugged: Part 2" next year in theaters will be timed to capitalize on the national mood during the presidential election. "There will be a debate going on about the direction of the country, and a lot of the groups who have embraced Ayn Rand’s philosophies will be engaged," he said.

The filmmakers, who self-distributed and marketed "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1" as "the movie liberal Hollywood doesn't want you to see" may partner with a studio distributor this time around, Kaslow said.

"John appreciates the autonomy that came with spending his own money and doing his own theatrical release," Kaslow said. "But he realizes that the motion picture business is especially challenging and there are a number of things studios do better than anybody else."
