Zack Snyder Confirms That THE FOUNTAINHEAD is His Next Film Project
Zack Snyder has confirmed on Vero that his next film project will be an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel The Fountainhead. This is a project that he's been wanting to develop for some time now. Back in 2016, when talking to THR about it, he said:
"I have been working on The Fountainhead I've always felt like The Fountainhead was such a thesis on the creative process and what it is to create something. Warner Bros. owns [Ayn Rand's] script and I've just been working on that a little bit."
So I guess that means Snyder will be working with Warner Bros. again. I wasn't sure if Snyder would work with the studio again after all of the Justice League drama that went down.
For those of you who aren't familiar with The Fountainhead, here's the description from the book:
When The Fountainhead was first published, Ayn Rand's daringly original literary vision and her groundbreaking philosophy, Objectivism, won immediate worldwide interest and acclaim. This instant classic is the story of an intransigent young architect, his violent battle against conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. As fresh today as it was then, here is a novel about a hero-and about those who try to destroy him.
The main theme of the book is the struggle of free mind, creativeness and individualism, against the common opinion of the people who just think what others would think. This seems like a good project for Snyder to take on next. I do like that he's going to dive into some different territory with his next film project. I'm just happy to hear that Snyder is getting ready to jump back in and make a new movie.
This wouldn't be the first adaptation of the novel. Warner Bros. produced and released a film based on the book back in 1949.
What do you all think about Snyder adapting The Fountainhead for his next film project?
