Zack Snyder has decided to postpone his adaption of the Ayn Rand novel The Fountainhead.
Discussing why the long-awaited adaptation had been put on hold, the Justice League director said on the podcast Life is Short with Justin Long that he believes a more "liberal government" is needed to make a movie so that "everyone won't freak out or something".
He went on to compare his filmmaking process to the controversial novel, saying: "You’re making little compromises constantly. Maybe one story less, and it’ll be very good. Does it really need all those fancy window frames? Maybe just make the windows. You wanted a mansion, and you end up with something that sort of looks like a house. For me, that’s always what The Fountainhead was about. For a lot of people, it’s a big political thing, but for me it’s not so much about that."
Snyder's reasons for putting the movie on the back burner more than likely means it will be a long time before he touches it. However, he won't be sitting around idling while he waits on the government to change.
