There’s a new Great Gatsby movie in the works – scheduled to be released December 25, 2012. Although the movie leaves behind much of the class and feel of the original setting (auto-tuned music? Come on!), the cast list is impressive:
Jay Gatsby – Leonardo DiCaprio
Daisy Buchanan – Carey Mulligan
Myrtle Wilson – Isla Fisher
Nick Carraway – Tobey Maguire
Tom Buchanan – Joel Edgerton
You can read more about the cast members and the movie itself on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1343092/
There’s no doubt that the director, Baz Luhrmann (who also filmed Moulin Rouge), is drawing a parallel between the lifestyle originally set by F. Scott Fitzgerald and now, but I can’t help but feel that I’d be much happier seeing a movie that was more true to the book. But this is Hollywood.
Anyways, take a look at the official trailer and tell me what you think!
Oh, did I mention this movie is in 3D? :\
