west egg, here we come!

Baz Luhrmann has officially secured the rights to direct F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tome, The Great Gatsby.  I guarantee Nicole Kidman will be Daisy… and I think Leonardo DiCaprio will be great cast as Nick Carraway.  As for Gatsby, I’m not sure.  Thoughts?

Although I would love to see this as a modern-day movie, I’m not sure he is the right person to direct.  I think it would lend itself better to someone a little more conservative, but you never know…

  1. well, ‘gatsby’ has already had the conservative movie treatment (the mediocre TV movie from the 90s) so maybe baz luhrmann can do something creative with the book. knowing him, it’ll probably be interesting to look at if nothing else…
