Filmmaker Zack Snyder has revealed that his next directorial venture is The Fountainhead, an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel.
The director, 52, made the revelation in response to a fan question on the social-media site Vero.
The Fountainhead, Rand’s first novel, was made into a 1949 movie starring Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal directed by King Vidor. Snyder’s last film was Justice League, the Warner Bros/DC tentpole that he directed and produced with wife Deborah Snyder.
Joss Whedon came aboard to do re-shoots and post-production on that film after the Snyders quit the project following the death of their daughter.
