I've never read or seen any version of the Great Gatsby, which was originally penned by F Scott Fitzgerald and released in 1925. Leonardo DiCaprio (who plays the lead role of Jay Gatsby) will team with director Baz Luhrman for the second time, the first was for 1996's William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. The film also has Drive's Carrie Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway.
Luhrman's bright visuals should look fucking great in 3D. I'm gonna make it my second option during this Christmas season, after hopefully multiple viewings of The Hobbit.
