After making three DC Extended Universe films almost back to back, Zack Snyder’s next project will see him move on from comic book movies for the time being.

Instead, Snyder is set to direct The Fountainhead, an adaptation of the 1943 novel from Ayn Rand. He confirmed this himself on the social media site Vero. The novel tells of an architect by the name of Howard Roark, who refuses to compromise.

The synopsis for the book reads as follows…

Architect Howard Roark is as unyielding as the granite he blasts to build with. Defying the conventions of the world around him, he embraces a battle over two decades against a double-dealing crew of rivals who will stop at nothing to bring him down. These include, perhaps most troublesome of all, the ambitious Dominique Francon, who may just prove to be Roarke’s equal. This epic story of money, power and a man’s struggle to succeed on his own terms is a paean to individualism and humanity’s creative potential. First published in 1943, The Fountainhead introduced millions to Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism: an uncompromising defence of self-interest as the engine of progress, and a jubilant celebration of man’s creative potential.

There are no further details of the project as of yet, nor any idea of casting or filming dates. As we hear more, we’ll let you know…
