Christina Ricci on The Fountainhead

Christina RicciIn an interview with Movieline Magazine from 2001, Christina Ricci mentions that she’s an admirer of The Fountainhead and would like to remake the movie:

Q: What’s your favorite novel? A: The Fountainhead because the writing is so beautiful.
Q: What about The Catcher in the Rye? A: I hate The Catcher in the Rye. It’s so whiny and incredibly self-involved. The fact that it was supposed to represent what we were going through in our teen years – I was just like, fuck you. I can take responsibility for my emotions and actions. […]
Q: If you could have three wishes connected to the movies, what would they be? A: I’d want to remake The Fountainhead. I’d like to run a studio. I want to have the capacity and ability to make films – I don’t have it right now.
Q: Would you say you have a large ego? A: Yes.

PS. In case you didn’t notice, that’s a copy of The Fountainhead she’s holding, in this poster. It looks as if she was approached about participating in a pro-reading poster campaign, and she chose The Fountainhead as the theme for her poster.
