Um, yes please!
Sources are reporting that acclaimed director, Baz Luhrmann, is making some progress with his adaptation of The Great Gatsby to screen. Supposedly, recently there was a workshop for actors to read the roles for the main leads. Among the attendees were Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Rebecca Hall!
Now, this isn't to say that the trio have the parts. On the contrary, there are rumors that Amanda Seyfried maybe be taking the role of Daisy instead of Rebecca, while other sources claim Baz has his eye on Natalie Portman. (Our vote is for Minge! Natalie is an obvious choice and Rebecca doesn't have as much star quality.)
Still, nothing from script to cast is firmed up yet, so we have no other information about possible production starting dates or what have you. Still, this is a nice step in the right direction!
