What in the world is Zack Snyder up to? If you’ve been following, on the heels of his departure from the Justice League film, he went radio silent for a good number of months, likely spending time with his family in the wake of his daughter’s death. Prior to his departure, it was stated that his next film would be a picture called The Last Photograph.

In the months since Justice League‘s release, the filmmaker has since taken to Vero to interact with fans and give his two cents on the way the film turned out. Seriously, the guy has probably revealed a lot more than he really should have, but that’s not all he’s done. In a new interaction, he revealed that his latest project will be none other than The Fountainhead.

You can see the interaction below:

For those who don’t know, The Fountainhead is a classic novel from author Ayn Rand, and it is described as follows in its official synopsis.

“This modern classic is the story of intransigent young architect Howard Roark, whose integrity was as unyielding as granite…of Dominique Francon, the exquisitely beautiful woman who loved Roark passionately, but married his worst enemy…and of the fanatic denunciation unleashed by an enraged society against a great creator. As fresh today as it was then, Rand’s provocative novel presents one of the most challenging ideas in all of fiction—that man’s ego is the fountainhead of human progress…”

Of course, with Rand’s name attached to it, this is a film that will likely be pretty high-profile in nature upon its release — and Snyder’s own name won’t hurt much either. There is no word as to why he switched projects from The Last Photograph to The Fountainhead, but this is pretty much par for the course in Hollywood.
