According to reports, the new film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved classic, "The Great Gatsby" is on the works and, if the rumours are true, this could turn up to be a terrific project. Apparently, Leonardo DiCaprio is up for the role of Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire for Nick Carraway, and Amanda Seyfried for Daisy Buchanan. A few years back, director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge) had acquired the rights to the novel, but there is no word yet if he will be sitting on the director's chair and helming the movie.
I hope that the rumours are true cause this would be a star-studded cast. After reading the novel, I could definitely see those three actors playing the roles perfectly. Seyfried has the perfect combination of beauty and apparent vulnerability that the character of Daisy needs, while Maguire and Dicaprio would be perfect fits for the roles of envious Nick and pretentious Gatsby. I also look forward to seeing Luhrmann's vision of the story (if he's still attached to the film) as his unique style will surely provide a touch of modernity to it.
